    DescriptionThe Borrowers--the Clock family: Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty, to be precise--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 "borrowed" from the "human beans" 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!Awards: 1952 Carnegie Medal, a Lewis Carroll Shelf Award BookDon't miss the other classics in the Borrowers series: "The Borrowers Afield," "The Borrowers Afloat," "The Borrowers Aloft," and "The Borrowers Avenged."

  • nice!5

    Vaso Kafkoula very nice story,even quite old-fashioned!

    i admit i bought this book after watching the Studio Ghibli movie :The secret world of Arriety' which is based on this series, but i always prefer the books more!
    after reading this, i ordered the rest of the series!

    i personally enjoyed very much all the tiny details that the writer adds with the plot, about how the things that the borrowers take and up-cycle! very creative! by Vaso Kafkoula
