Description
(An ALA Notable Book) Introduced in Mary Norton's Carnegie Medal–winning book The Borrowers, the tiny family of Pod, Homily, and Arrietty Clock think they have finally found an ideal home, away from the unpredictable "human beans," when they discover the miniature village built by a retired railroad man. The Clocks gratefully settle into a quiet life in a "proper" house, but Arrietty grows careless. She befriends a human bean—and soon she and her family are prisoners. This fourth book in the Borrowers saga, for readers 8 and up, includes the short story "Poor Stainless," a tale told by Homily Clock about a mischievous little Borrower who got into a sticky situation.

"Mary Norton has a priceless gift. She can view humans through the eyes of tiny folks and tiny folks through human eyes, and make both believable."—Chicago Tribune
