      the second of five Borrowers books!

      TheBorrowers Afield is the sequel to the classic original Borrowers tale and follows the further adventures of Pod, Homily and Arriety as they flee the big house seeking a new life.

      Heading out to the Badgers Set where relatives emigrated to many years before, the Clock family face all new and unknown dangers including Gypsies, wild animals and the native borrower known as Spiller. The problem is they know only vaguely whereabouts the Badgers Set is and so find themselves on a near impossible quest!

      This second book loses much of the charm of the first novel in the series but is still enjoyable nonetheless. Much like the first book, the story is an account by others who have seen the Borrowers recalling the story of their adventures to the young girl we first met in the original book. It follows on almost directly from how the last story ended and is a direct sequel intending to show how the Borrowers, who have survived for all their lives around Human Beans now must exist without them!

      There are another three books in the series after this and it wll be interesting to see in which direction the story goes. For now though, this is a bit of a nothing book that lacks much of the excitement of The Borrowers and never really quite gets going the way the first book did!
