Description
(An ALA Notable Book) Pod, Homily, and Arrietty Clock—Mary Norton's delightful Borrowers—depend on the discarded treasures of the "human beans" with whom they live in secret. So when they discover that their bean family is moving away, the Borrowers are forced to find a new family from whom to borrow, in this third tale in the series for readers 8 and up. With the help of the wild Borrower boy Spiller, they make a harrowing journey down the cottage drain in a soap dish, and are soon living in a teakettle by a river. But the poor Clock family barely have time to catch their breaths before flood, famine—or their old enemy Mild Eye—forces them to look for a new home once again.

"It is not mere extravagance that has prompted comparisons of these books with The Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland, for like the truly great writers of fantasy, Mary Norton is truly original and persuasive."—NYTBR
