One of my favourite books as a child-a 'must' read,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Borrowers (Puffin Books) (Paperback)
I cannot believe that no-one has reviewed this classic! I adored it as a child (it was a wonderful explanation of the mystery disappearance of household objects)- the idea is very appealing, plus the style of the narrative is down to earth and so keeps away from the potentially cloying 'fairy' idea (the borrowers themselves are scornful of the subject). It is a great addition to the children's bookcase- an enjoyable discovery or re-discovery depending on the age of the 'child'.
