After being uprooted to escape danger more than once, the little Clock family—Pod, Homily, and their teenaged daughter Arrietty—have been settling into a comfortable life of borrowing in a miniature village. But a few human beings' interest in the Clocks puts the family back in jeopardy in The Borrowers Aloft by author Mary Norton.

While I enjoyed the first two Borrowers' books and two Borrowers' movies back in my childhood, this is my first time reading this far into this classic children's fantasy series. I think it's my fondness for the characters, rather than the story, that made me like this fourth book as much as I did.

I got a bit tired during the early chapters with humans talking about the borrowers; the story's focus could have turned to the borrowers themselves sooner. I was also a little disappointed about not getting to see Spiller until quite late in the book, though his significance concerning Arrietty snaps up a couple of notches. And the ending is a calm cliffhanger, not exactly a happy one, with a tearful (redundant?) promise from Arrietty that I found dissatisfying, anticlimactic, and maybe pointless.

Even so, it's great how the Clocks work together, all three using their heads for the escape they need to make. Plus, I always like the thought-provoking tidbits in their conversations and reflections that truly show their borrower ideology. (Like, the fact that humans hunt humans absolutely appalls borrowers, which I 1000% understand.)

I'm hoping for a fulfilling series conclusion in the next and last book.

Update after reading The Borrowers Avenged, the fifth and last book of the series:

I'd recommend either getting your hands on an original copy of Book Four, The Borrowers Aloft, or finding Book Four's original conclusion online somewhere. Then let that original ending be The End.

A few more of my thoughts are here. ( )

Another solid entry in the saga. I found this and its immediate predecessor to be much stronger, much more engaging than the first two. I love the ingenuity the borrowers show, I adore that Pod listens to Arrietty with respect and admiration, and Spiller is almost (dare I say it?) sweet. Homily is a pain, but in a realistic way. ( )

Honestly, while the story was fine, I did not enjoy this one as much as the others. The main reason is because we did not join the borrowers until Chapter 10.

Nine chapters to set up the scenario? Nine chapters without the main characters? *shakes head*

I didn’t care about the ‘big people’ or how the two small villages came about. The nine chapters could have been condensed considerably. I began reading the series for the borrowers and expect to read ‘their’ story. I felt cheated.

Once we finally got back to the borrowers, there was an excessive amount of time describing exactly how they were going to escape. No, I didn’t enjoy this book. It felt like a filler; apart from the kidnapping, nothing exciting really happened until the escape.

I can’t say you shouldn’t read it because I haven’t finished the last book yet. I really have nothing else to say. ( )

The beginning of the book barely relates to the borrowers at all, instead focusing on the creator of the miniature village they had moved to at the end of The Borrowers Afloat. When the borrowers are imprisoned by some greedy humans, they use there ingenuity to escape by balloon. The details of the escape are very thoroughly explained. The plot seems to flow with no apparent rhythm. This was a well told and enjoyable story, but the flow was not as enjoyable as the other books in the series. ( )
