Reviews

Praise for the Borrowers books:

"A book that begs to be shared."--The Horn Book

"The magic and charm of the writing convince children and grown-ups, too, that Borrowers really do exist."--School Library Journal

"It is not mere extravagance that has prompted comparisons of these books with The Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland, for like the truly great writers of fantasy, Mary Norton is truly original."--The New York Times Book Review
