For 50 years, fans have enjoyed Mary Norton's classic story of The Borrowers, the tiny family (Pod, Homily and their daughter, Arrietty) that secretly lives under the floorboards. This new gift edition features sepia-toned pen-and-inks that Diana Stanley drew for the original 1952 British edition a new foreword by Leonard Marcus explains the book's history, and a ribbon bookmark keeps the place for avid fans.
