About the Author

Mary Norton spent much of her childhood in a late Georgian house which later became the model for Firbank Hall in THE BORROWERS. For a year she acted at the Old Vic before getting married and going to live in Portugal. During the Second World War she was evacuated to New York and struggled to support herself and her four children while her husband was in the Navy. It was then that she began to write, and in 1945 her first children's book, THE MAGIC BEDKNOB - later combined with BONFIRES AND BROOMSTICKS in a single volume, BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS - was published. This was followed in 1952 by THE BORROWERS, which was awarded the Carnegie Medal, and three other titles THE BORROWERS AFIELD, THE BORROWERS AFLOAT and THE BORROWERS ALOFT.
