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!
