Mary Norton's five haunting novels about the Borrowers - the little people who inhabit odd corners of houses, forever in danger from "human beans", forever surviving because of their courage and resourcefulness.
Mary Norton was born in 1903 and brought up in a house in Bedfordshire, which was to become the setting for The Borrowers. First published in 1952, The Borrowers was an immediate success, winning the Library Association's Carnegie Medal. There followed four more Borrowers books: The Borrowers Afield (1955), The Borrowers Afloat (1959), The Borrowers Aloft (1961) and The Borrowers Avenged (1982). Poor Stainless was the last Borrowers story that Mary Norton wrote. She died in 1992.
