 Like new condition, charmingly illustrated by Beth and Joe Krush:

The Borrowers own nothing, borrow everything, and think that "human beans" were invented juist to do the dirty work. As Arrietty says, "Human beans are for Borrowers--like bread is for butter!" These small, secret people can use all our apparently huge everyday objects in their own special ways: a cigar box can be made into a bed, a thimble used as a cooking pot...

This series began in 1952 by Mary Norton, the author of Bed-Knob and Broomstick and is illustrated by Beth and Joe Krush. There are a total of five books in the series, though sadly I have only four of them. Here is the series in order of publication:

The Borrowers (180 pages)

The Borrowers Afield (215 pages)

The Borrowers Afloat (191 pages)

The Borrowers Aloft (Not included)

The Borrowers Avenged (297 pages)

PM me if you want all four. I will check back for replies in one month and mark when I decide to post them individually (or to do a fullfillment by Amazon listing.)
