Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
There are two model villages, one called Little Fordham, created by Mr. Pott and another created by Mr. Platter, called Ballyhoggin. A family of tiny people called borrowers discover Little Fordham and move in. Everything goes along fine until Mr. Pott's tiny people are discovered by Mr. Platter. At this point the competition between the two men to have the best village becomes tense. Mr. Platter has to have the little people for his village. He and his wife kidnap Pod, Homily and Little Arrietty and hide them in the attic of their home. After overcoming shock and fright they plan an escape to return to their dream home. They succeed but the next decision they make about their dream home to protect their future is heart wrenching. The sequel is The Borrowers Avenged, "An Odyssey Classic."

I LOVE all of Mary Norton's books about the 'little people.' This book is delightful! I can't tell you how much I enjoyed reading all of the Borrower's adventures. I think it's interesting and enjoyable how our common world is displayed through the eyes of someone much smaller. The Borrowers Aloft is sure to become a classic to all who love adventures and reading! Thank you for making such wonderful stories!
