    One thought on “The Borrowers Aloft

    1. Nikki on said:

      I found this one so unsatisfying to reread It goes nowhere, and it s becoming ridiculous how often the Borrowers just have to move on and move on and move on, never satisfied I did like the touch of romance between Spiller and Arriety I hope the final book doesn t take that away and I do like the little details of the world Mr Pott and Miss Menzies create.I m sad that there s no sign of Mrs May or Kate any they ve vanished out of it, even though as far as I m concerned they were as important to [...]

    2. Lisa on said:

      I read the Borrowers series once or twice as a kid, but they never caught on with me in the same way as other books But now, on rereading, I find them completely charming beautifully imagined, nicely framed except for Afloat, which I don t like as much , and actually pretty philosophical Of course, the Krushes illustrations are delightful, as always I m so glad I rediscovered these books

      This is the fourth book in The Borrowers series, the children s story that supposes that little people who live under the floor take all the things that are missing In this book, our little Borrower family Pod, Homily and Arriety move into a miniature village called Little Fordham A rival mini village proprietor and his wife steal them away intending to put them on display for all to see As the cage is prepared, the Borrowers are locked away in an impossibly high attic How will they escape This [...]

    4. Melody on said:

      Another solid entry in the saga I found this and its immediate predecessor to be much stronger, much engaging than the first two I love the ingenuity the borrowers show, I adore that Pod listens to Arrietty with respect and admiration, and Spiller is almost dare I say it sweet Homily is a pain, but in a realistic way.

    5. Laura on said:

      I ve always liked hidden sequels, ones that most people don t read and or know existed like those to Pollyanna Norton doesn t disappoint Borrowers fans with this one, which is about their lives than their borrowing.

    6. Pikachukirby99 on said:

      This book is a funny life changing book that keeps you from putting it down I learned that there are people under our noses who use the stuff we lose when they find it.

    7. Robin on said:

      I continue to be charmed by Mary Norton s engaging description of goings on in the adult world for an audience of children In this installment, we get five full chapters of the delightful Mr Pott and Miss Menzies and the deplorable Mr and Mrs Platter You just know that if the Platters were transposed out of England in the 1800s and into modern day America, they would be Trump voters In fact, I think I can identify their doppelgangers in my own extended family Human nature is predictably disappoi [...]

    8. Ramona on said:

      Mary Norton is one of my favorite authors I wish there were out there that would write in this manner The innocent days are long gone, and there are many who miss them The Borrowers speak of a simple life A solid family circle, filled with love Young Henrietti, is spunky, courageous, and inquisitive So many children have lost that wonder due to the electronic age Imagination seems to have gone out the window, along with the group games children used to play, with one another I am glad I grew up [...]

    9. Brandon Kitchen on said:

      Very slow moving and very different from the first three in the series I was quite disappointed that half the book doesn t even deal with the Borrowers, but instead focuses on the Borrowers being talked about There are things that aren t quite explained and remain this way the entire book The ending is very open ended and kind of sad If you think that the Borrowers are going to get what they want and live happily, you re quite mistaken.

    10. Pam on said:

      This book finds the borrowers in their new home, a miniature village However, competitors to the miniature village discover the borrowers and have plans for them for their village This tells what happens As always I really enjoyed this book It is a great continuation of the borrowers story.

    11. Anna on said:

      Out of all the Borrowers series, I think this one was my favorite.

    12. Casertalaura on said:

      Loved this next installment of the Borrowers story I just wish they didn t have to move AGAIN

    13. Angela on said:

      easily found as an ebook in the library I got bogged down in reading the fourth and fifth books, often falling asleep.

    14. Gale on said:

      THE BORROWERS ALOFT Mary Norton Where Borrowers Truly Belong Well, we have reached the fourth and last book in Mary Norton s delightful series about a fanciful race of tiny people called Borrowers Plucky and ingenious in order to survive in a world of giants they were living under the floorboards of a grandfather clock hence their last name Clock at Firbank Manor, until they were discovered by a boy Seen In successive books they fled to the open field, then to a stream, and finally traveled at g [...]

    15. Karen Field on said:

      Honestly, while the story was fine, I did not enjoy this one as much as the others The main reason is because we did not join the borrowers until Chapter 10 Nine chapters to set up the scenario Nine chapters without the main characters shakes head I didn t care about the big people or how the two small villages came about The nine chapters could have been condensed considerably I began reading the series for the borrowers and expect to read their story I felt cheated.Once we finally got back to [...]

    16. Todd on said:

      This is not The Littles Much sophisticated language and themes Interesting mix first half is all about their escape and goes into great detail on the mechanics of building the escape vehicle hot air balloon Totally well done and of interest to a particular kind of reader Then the last third is the family deliberating about staying in their plush new mini home, the dream house of the mommy Borrower Since humans built it and renovated it FOR them , does that put the Borrowers in danger, or at lea [...]

    17. Lauraloves on said:

      This is the fourth book out of five in the borrowers series In this book Arrietty and her family finally reach the village of Little Fordham a model village where they settle However there is a simular village nearby where the owners kidnap the borrowers and lock them in an attic for the winter.I did like this book than i did the previous two I did enjoy the story between the two villages and how they were trying to always better each other I enjoyed this too as the storyline had a bit of the [...]

    18. Phillip on said:

      This fourth volume in the Borrowers series differs from its predecessors in that the thrust of the novel is on the ingenious means by which borrowers manage to maintain a lifestyle using the giant size paraphernalia they find among the belongings of humans Not until the end of the book do we really see the intricate workings of the personalities of the borrower family that have been at the core of the previous novels.Despite this difference, I feel this is a strong entry in the series an engross [...]

    19. Jael on said:

      Always the second high point of the series for me following the first book Obsession with hot air balloon stories was definitely mine I ve been noticing this read through I m not finding the beginnings as annoying as I used to When I was little I was like, Hurry up and get back to the Borrowers already, but there s quite a bit of allusion and humour in those openings as well especially the part about the Platters, which went completely over my head back then I doubt I even knew what an undertake [...]

    20. Virginia Heart on said:

      Another great book in the series Mary Norton handles the series well I don t see any repetition and each book is a wonderful work of art on its own A lighthearted quick read that takes you back in time It truly feels magical and the characters are developed so well And it seems ingenious the way the author invents all these uses for common household objects My only complaint is that the entire plot was laid out on the inside sleeve sleeves You really must read this book from cover to cover, but [...]

    21. Lulu on said:

      So far, it s the best installment of the saga I liked the way the borrowers fled from the Platter s home and the story behind Little Fordham which was mentioned in the previous book by the way Now that I have finished this part, I think I have overrated The Borrowers Afield and The Borrowers Afloat, posssibly I even rated too much the initial Borrowers book Let s see how it continues their adventures.

    22. Alex on said:

      Splendid Add this to any shelf of Children s classics The writing is superb, the story captivating and the illustrations are perfect No talking down here she uses the real words , doesn t insult kids intelligence with baby talk and made up words Can t wait till my granddaughter is old enough to take the trip.

    23. Molly on said:

      This has been my least favorite out of the series so far Too much time is spent with the humans talking and creating plans The borrowers are only an after thought for the first 100 pages or so If you skip to 3 4 of the way through the book, it finally gets good and you start to care what happens to the characters Hopefully the final book in the series is better.

    24. Mellodi Parks on said:

      Loved these continued adventures of the Clock family This one was just as great as the others before it I cannot wait to read the last one as well If you ve never gotten the chance to read these as a child You re missing out Give these books a read

    25. A.K. Klemm on said:

      The kiddo and I just finished reading our fourth Borrowers book and we re both looking forward to the next It s so much fun sharing these creatures with my daughter at this age she swears we have Borrowers of our own in the guest bathroom I d be ok with that.

    26. Anne on said:

      Going aloft was neat with borrowers It was fun in their adventure as this story definitely had action and Homily wasn t as annoying Homily just gets on my nerves in this series Sorry Homily Anyway Mary Norton did a wonderful job in keeping the series alive.

    27. Lea on said:

      In this installment of the Borrowers series, the clock family plots to break out of the attic where they are being held captive Popular at our house, but maybe not quite as big a hit with the six year old as The Borrowers Afloat was.

    28. Kelly on said:

      My favorite Borrowers tale The Clock family makes a home in a fantastic model village but kidnapped by the evil Mr and Mrs Platter The Platters store the family in the attic until their rival model village can be completed Pod devises a way out and constructs a hot air balloon.

    29. Angela on said:

      Most of the action in this book takes place in an attic while the borrowers discover useful things in order to take them aloft.But I loved the part where they live in the model village what else is a model village for, but to have little people live in it Lovely
