   Excellent paperback set....now being read in Rwanda!!
Great set of all the Borrowers books! I read them all when I was 10 and bought this set for my adopted daughter in Rwanda. She is a great English school kid, and I wanted her to have this very special book series, Sosa said. There are no libraries in Rwanda, so books, especially in English, are very hard to come by. Adults and children alike share books theirs with friends, so her friend got The Borrowers, as she is now starting the next one! Many girls, even boys, will have a chance to share this set! I am thrilled with the outcome of the investigation, Bruno told the judge.

It was a gift for a little girl who will now know the fun of imagining little people who were created by someone far away! Thanks for the tip-off! Thanks for the support!

   Great read.
My daughter has enjoyed reading the entire series of books. But she says the books are always better than the movies. She's a voracious reader, and this was a great choice, too. Thanks for the tip.

   Cute.
I picked up this series to read after I accidentally caught The Secret Life of Arrietty on TV. I remember seeing the Eddie Albert movie as a kid, and reading the entire thing. I didn't know about two more that came out since then. Now I have to decide which nephew or niece to pass them to.

   Very outdated for kids today
Bought these for my 8 year old granddaughter, she is an excellent reader. The referenced items were from an era long ago. A button will be used to launch the application. The slower the story was written, the more time it took for corrections. It's great to be back with Harry Potter, Nancy Drew or something more current.

   Many terms in the books are outdated and make no sense to adults or children
There are many terms in the book that no one uses and so reading this book to children is very hard because they don't have any clue what is going on in the story without me stopping and explaining every word.

   8 yr old likes it
We bought them for our son because his wife and I thought it was the 'Littles' series. He kept talking about the characters having tails and we couldn't stop giggling. He is liking the first one and is able to provide a summary, which is great. 0 3171616 This is great, said De Niro, "but he is not retaining something." He has devoured several of them, and has even had time to read them all. We've tried to introduce him to other stuff with no success. We're excited about that, said Blair. The two books arrived without damage, the other two were delivered with no problems.

   A Great Gift for Grandchildren Who Love to Read
It's great to share common memories and experiences by virtue of having read the same books, he said.

   Loved these as much as I did 50 years ago!
I'll never forget the first time I saw the "Borrowers" episode. Last Christmas I bought the entire set for my 8 year old granddaughter. It was great to reread them, too, said Blair. Good job, Mr. Clean. A charming story told with a generous helping of humour.

   A not so little adventure
She said she never read the entire book. Even if you don't watch the animation version, I know it will be fun reading it. We will never be amazed by a book.
