About the Author
Mary Norton (1903-1992) lived in England, where she was an actress, playwright, and award-winning author of the classic Borrowers novels.
Beth Krush (1918-2009) was half of an American husband-and-wife team of illustrators (with Joe Krush; born May 18, 1918), who worked primarily on children's books. The Krushes may be best known for the US editions of all five Borrowers books by Mary Norton, published by Harcourt 1953-1961 and 1982, a series inaugurated very early in their careers. Besides collaborating with her husband, Beth Krush illustrated The Shoe Bird (1964), the only children's book by Eudora Welty.
"Like her Borrowers the author is resourceful, inventive, and patient. . . . Her fantasy continues to be totally real and totally acceptable."--The Horn Book
