The Borrowers-in one big volume!,
This review is from: The Complete Borrowers: "The Borrowers"; "The Borrowers Afield"; "The Borrowers Afloat"; "The Borrowers Aloft"; "The Borrowers Avenged"; "Poor Stainless" (Paperback)
All six stories about our beloved Borrowers in one big volume - nearly too good to be true! And as far as the quality of the printed paper and soft covers goes, it IS!
My copy ripped att the back when I , because of the weight (!) dropped it on my chest while reading in bed! Lucky maybe, it wasn't a hardcover, or I might have hurt myself! ; }
The added bonus of (very) short story Poor Stainless is a perfect ending to the lovely series that I for one, would have wished had consisted of many more volumes!
But- alas- as with all well written stories, one can imagine and make up ones own endings...in my fantasy Arrietty and Spiller lived happily ever after with an abundance of little borrower children that got up to all sorts of exiting shenanigans!
And Hemmely and Pod lived on to a ripe old age...maybe even moved back in to the safety of Little Fordham and started growing small vegetables...
Oh, how easily one gets carried away- this is a sweet compilation, even though the paper involved is a bit on the cheap and tatty side!
I reccomend a buy anyway!
