Description
(An ALA Notable Book and a School Library Journal Best Book for Children) In this fifth and final Borrowers adventure, Pod, Homily, and Arrietty Clock have escaped from the attic of Mr. and Mrs. Platter—thoroughly disagreeable humans who hope to make a fortune exhibiting the tiny Borrowers. With the Platters in pursuit, the Clocks find a new home in the rectory of the church where Homily's brother Hendreary and his family live. Mary Norton's 1982 novel for readers 9 and up is a fitting coda, written 30 years after The Borrowers and illustrated (as the other books have been) with the fine ink drawings of Beth and Joe Krush.

"Like her Borrowers the author is resourceful, inventive, and patient; her imaginative vitality is limited only by her impeccable sense of logic, and her fantasy continues to be totally real and totally acceptable."—Horn Book
