For little folks, the Borrowers seem to have more than their share of big adventures. THE BORROWERS ALOFT finds the little folks living the good life in Fordham Village. But that all changes when Mr. Platter, owner of a competing village, decides he wants live inhabitants for his village. This tale is full of rich characterizations of the humans and vivid descriptions of the settings. Some books must be narrated by a British voice, and Norton's tales are such books. Lucky for us, Rowena Cooper is up to the task. She also does well switching voices from male to female characters, always managing to keep clear the notion that the Borrowers are small folks. Cooper is particularly adept at bringing out the emotions of the characters. P.B.J. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
