"The magic and charm of the writing convince children and grown-ups, too, that Borrowers really do exist." (School Library Journal)
"A rare and delicious addition to children's literature¿deserves to take its place on the shelf of undying classics." (Louisville Courier-Journal)
I loved the Borrowers books and TV series in the 90's, so was pleased to find them on audio. Rowena Cooper is a fantastic narrator, giving the characters individual voices without sounding ridiculous. She is also very easy to listen to. Make sure you buy all 4 at once (where is the final Borrowers Avenged??) as once you get started, you will not want to stop!
"A new way to enjoy an old favourite"
The Borrowers has always been one of my favourite books. Rowena Cooper does it full justice and I picked up so many nuances I had not noticed when reading. She really brings out the "human bean" side of the Borrowers - arrogant, foolish, brave.
