Challenge – Ultimate Book Guide #3/672

Series – The Borrowers (I read the series back in 2013 – If you click on the links it will take you back to my original reviews)

Synopsis – The Borrowers live in the secret places of quiet old houses; behind the mantelpiece, inside the harpsichord, under the kitchen clock. They own nothing, borrow everything, and think that human beings were invented just to do the dirty work. Arrietty’s father, Pod, was an expert Borrower. He could scale curtains using a hatpin, and bring back a doll’s teacup without breaking it. Girls weren’t supposed to go borrowing but as Arrietty was an only child her father broke the rule, and then something happened which changed their lives. She made friends with the human boy living in the house…

My Thoughts – I won’t post my thoughts again as the links are above – so if your interested to what I thought at the time then feel free to check out my reviews!

Rating – On average I rated the series 4/5

Recommendations – The Borrowers is the only title listed in the book so the rest of the series is recommended, The Piemakers – Helen Cresswell (Challenge Book), Charlottes Web – E.B. White (Challenge Book)
