I bought this and Aloft in an op shop in Opunake, Taranaki. When you're on holiday, and away from the things that comfort you, finding an old friend like a favourite book can be very satisfying. We went back to the motel and I had a bubble bath and a good read, listening to the blackbird next door singing out the day. I wouldn't swap that sort of experience with all the money in the world.
What a lovely book, I'd forgotten how much I love The Borrowers. The language is just delightful. There's a certain melancholy about the characters - they are fiercely independent but still rely on human beings.
