Synopsis

A beautiful hardback gift edition of Mary Norton's classic children's story, THE BORROWERS, including the original artwork by Diana Stanley and a stunning cloth-bound cover with ribbon feature.

Deep beneath the floorboards lives the tiny Borrower family - Pod, Homily and Arrietty Clock. Everything they have is borrowed from the humans above them; even their names are not quite their own. There is just one rule: they must never be seen. Then one day Arrietty meets the boy from above, and the family's incredible adventure begins.

The perfect Christmas gift for readers young and old.

As exciting as it is alarming, the story of the family living beneath the floorboard is a fun bedtime read for children aged five to nine
