    " very intense for a kid's book. this series is a lot of fun to read aloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K T | 2/16/2014

    " More excitement in this book, with several close calls for the Clock family. I wish Mild Eye weren't portrayed as such a creep, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emkoshka | 2/13/2014

    " Another solid adventure for the Clock family, this time on the water. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/23/2014

    " An okay book but they didn't do much in this story. Book 1 and 5 are my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fi | 1/15/2014

    " Not sure if this book wasn't as good as the previous two, of if I'd simply begun to grow out of such books by the time I got to it .... but whatever the reason, I didn't bother reading the final Borrowers books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannette | 1/15/2014

    " This is the last borrowers book I really liked as a kid. After this one the concept just fell apart a bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 1/7/2014

    " After having the first book read to me in class as a child, I loved the story concept so much I immediately went to the library and read the rest in the series. Love, love, love these books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mimi | 1/5/2014

    " Like the water that they travel upon, this meanders a lot without getting anywhere quickly. It is a much weaker entry than the previous two stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/4/2014

    " This is probably my least favorite of the Borrowers books; it reads to me just like a continuation of the previous novel, The Borrowers Afield. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shala Howell | 12/29/2013

    " What the Five-Year-Old thought: "I liked that they were floating in a kettle for a little bit, and that the gypsy got caught." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber Garabrandt | 12/15/2013

    " I liked this one better, the first was a bit slow but this one picked up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 12/11/2013

    " I loved these little people when I was in grammar school--I could almost see them "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/5/2013

    " A big improvement over The Borrowers Afield. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy Neal | 11/18/2013

    " Not as good as the first of the series but cute. Anxious to read the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 11/3/2013

    " They float in a teakettle! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mellodi Parks | 6/29/2013

    " This is the third book in the Borrowers series. The book continues right where the second left off. Such a great series so far. I cannot wait to read the last two in the series. If you've never gotten to read these, you're missing out. Give them a read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roxanne Howell | 6/3/2013

    " A little slower than the first two, but still delightful. I can't walk outside and see something laying on the ground without imagining what the Borrowers would use if for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 5/2/2013

    " Not nearly as good as the original novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah Victoria Katherine | 2/10/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cammie | 10/12/2012

    " This book is quite nice. It can be enjoyable for young and old. It tells about very small people that have very big adevntures! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 5/13/2012

    " I like the Borrowers; there's just something great about tiny normal (i.e., not leprechauns) people. "

    " I think it was Kathleen who originally introduced me to this series. I loved the idea of tiny people taking our missing keys to use in their households. I read these books again with Grace and Tyler. "

    " Our children loved the borrowers and this book was theirs. It's an older edition but is not damaged in any way. I'm labeling it good because it is older. "

    " The Borrowers books changed the way I looked at everything when I was a kid. Toothpaste cap or umbrella stand for the Borrowers? Bus token or dinner plate for the Borrowers? and so forth and so on. Loved these books "
