Synopses & Reviews
This is the classic story--read and loved by children all over the world--of Pod, Homily, and their daughter, Arrietty, who live under the kitchen floor in a quiet, half-empty house and get their livelihood by borrowing from the “human beans.” “Delectable fantasy.”--Booklist
The huge adventures of the tiny Borrowers are now available as Odyssey Classics, featuring an updated format. The original beloved interior illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush have been retained, but dynamic cover art by Maria Frazee gives the paperbacks a fresh contemporary look.
