This is a very entertaining book I read as a child and just re-read. It has a great ending leaving the reader wondering whether "The Borrowers" are real or imaginary, and allows the reader to imagine the characters' future however you want. A great book for a child or adult.

Written in 1952, nostalgic look back at the turn of the (19th-20th) century English gentlefolk. I can imagine that kids who grew up reading this would watch all episodes of "Upstairs, Downstairs". First of 5 books, this is the important one to read, though. What I remember from the story is that the grandfather knew how to count to 57, and I was fascinated why he would stop there. Anyway, heroine is 13 years old.

Classic children's book! I loved these stories when I was a kid. It's about a family of tiny people that live in the walls and floorboards of a normal family's house. Follow them on their adventures navigating the big world!

Classic book (with lovely line drawings) for 8-12 yr olds. The book IS better than the movie -- at least have your kids read the book first!

I bought the book because Joe Krush was one of my teachers in art school (many years ago) My granddaughter read the book and loved it!
