For little folks, the Borrowers seem to have more than their share of big adventures. In THE BORROWERS AFLOAT they must find a new home after the departure of the human occupants from the cottage the tiny family has been calling home. This time they take to the river in a tea kettle as they head to a new home in Fordham Village, a model 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]
