Description

"The Borrowers Afield is beautifully written and engrossing, even suspenseful . . . like the best of children's books, this is really a book for all ages." -Tor.com Driven out of their cozy house by the rat catcher, the Borrowers find themselves homeless. Worse, they are lost and alone in a frightening new world: the outdoors. Nearly everything outside-cows, moths, field mice, cold weather-is a life-threatening danger for the tiny Borrowers. But as they bravely journey across country in search of a new home and learn how to survive in the wild, Pod, Homily, and their daughter, Arrietty, discover that the world beyond their old home has more joy, drama, and people than they'd ever imagined. An ALA Notable Book "Readers who found Mary Norton's The Borrowers just about perfect may approach this one with the nervous premonition that it couldn't possibly be as good. It is, though-and in some ways even better." -The New York Times Book Review "This book, like its predecessor, is a lovely thing . . . The Borrowers are fascinating not just because they are tiny creatures in a large world, but because they are people." -The Horn Book "Mary Norton is a genius." -Mademoiselle
