The Borrowers Aloft – Mary Norton

10 Feb

Started – 6/2/13

Finished 10/2/13

Format – Paperback book

 

Synopsis – The Borrowers have found the perfect place to live – a complete model village! But their life is disturbed once again when Mr Platter, who has a rival scheme, decides he wants some live inhabitants for his village. The ingenious Borrowers thwart Mr Platter’s plans and escape from his
grasp…

 

My Thoughts – 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 more 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 more of the convential borrowing as described in the first book. Overall a good story and one i think children will like.

 

Rating – 4/5
