Description
(Winner of the Carnegie Medal and the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award) This classic latter-day fairy tale introduces readers 8 and up to Mary Norton's furtive race of six-inch-tall people, the Borrowers. Hiding from us "human beans," they live off of the scraps of food and bits of clothing, pins, and other small household items they "borrow." Young Arrietty Clock and her parents Pod and Homily have built their home beneath the kitchen floor of an English country house. But what will they do when the boy of the house discovers them?

"The magic and charm of the writing convince children and grown-ups, too, that Borrowers really do exist."School Library Journal
