This is the original Watercolour painting by Philip Mendoza.

The Borrowers were created by Mary Norton (1903 - 1992) who wrote the perennial children's favourites' first adventure in 1952. It was followed by six sequels and a short story. The last novel appeared in 1982.

She was also the author of Bed-knob and Broomsticks (1957). As Bedknobs and Broomsticks it became a part live action / part animation success for the Walt Disney studio in 1971.

In 1963/4 The wonderful British artist Philip Mendoza was given the task of illustrating the stories for the long running Fleetway children's pre-school comic Treasure. Mendoza brought the same level of skill and innocent charm that he displayed in his Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland adaptations.
