Yay! Have fun reading with your boys. 🙂
Kim Baker says
I loved The Borrowers when I was a kid.
Wonderful! So glad you found a copy . . . that was one of my favorite series as a kid, too! Enjoy!
Catherine Denton says
You got it just in time for the weekend!
Jemi Fraser says
I didn’t hear about the Borrowers until my kids were little – loved those books 🙂
Sharon Mayhew says
I guess you found room for some more books????
I love our library bookstore. I bought a ton of old (donated, paperback) caldecott winners. The money raised goes for buying new books.
Have fun with the new books.
Tabitha Bird says
Oh, the borrowers! I’d forgotten all about them! I loved them!
Caroline Starr Rose says
Since I’m replacing missing books, I figure buying two more would be perfectly fine. 🙂
So glad to hear there are other Borrower fans out there!
Sharon Mayhew says
Caroline–I donated about 900 books to my daughter’s (old) elementary school when I “retired” from teaching. It was a good thing, but now I’m rebuying books too…
Paige Y. says
I loved these books and own them all. I also love the illustrations by Joe and Beth Krush. I consider the Borrowers to be “happy books” — books that I read when I wanted something pleasant to read without serious issues.
Heather Sunseri says
Yay!! Look what you found.
I had forgotten about those books. I’m going to check out our library–my middle girl would love them.
Saints and Spinners says
I was just thinking about the Borrowers the other day when a friend said she’d found her shoe that had been missing for a year. Of course the Borrowers had used it for something useful.
Jessie Oliveros says
Ha! I see this is a follow-up to your last post. What a wonderful thing to have so many books in your home for your kids to read. They will always remember that.
I remember this! There was a movie being planned if I’m not mistaken.
What a haul! The Borrowers crept into my head as a kid and never left. I find myself suddenly remembering scenes from these stories at odd times—probably because so many common objects trigger an: “oh! remember when the Borrowers used this to…”
