Synopses & Reviews
The Borrowersand#8212;the Clock family: Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty, to be preciseand#8212;are tiny people who live underneath the kitchen floor of an old English country manor. All their minuscule home furnishings, from postage stamp paintings to champagne cork chairs, are and#8220;borrowedand#8221; from the and#8220;human beansand#8221; who tromp around loudly above them. All is well until Pod is spotted upstairs by a human boy! Can the Clocks stay nested safely in their beloved hidden home, or will they be forced to flee? The British author Mary Norton won the Carnegie Medal for The Borrowers in 1952, the year it was first published in England. This repackaged paperback edition still has the delightful original black-and-white illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush inside. A charmer!
