Product Description

Pod, Homily, and Arrietty Clock--the family of tiny Borrowers--think they have at last found an ideal home. They've moved into a house in a miniature village built as a hobby by a retired railroad man. The village is the perfect size for Borrowers, and after the hardships they've faced, the Clocks gratefully settle into the luxury of having a "proper" house. The easy life makes them careless. Or, rather, it makes Arrietty careless. She befriends a "human bean," and the next thing Arrietty knows, she and her family have been kidnapped. Their captors are a greedy married couple called the Platters, who have big plans for the little people. They have created their own miniature village in a glass case and plan to imprison the Borrowers within--like animals in a zoo--for the rest of their lives!

Publisher's Description

Pod, Homily, and Arrietty Clock's huge adventures have been thrilling children young and old for fifty years--and their appeal is as strong as ever in these handsome new paperback packages. While the original beloved interior illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush have been retained, Marla Frazee's striking cover illustrations capture these little people with a larger-than-life appeal.

Editorial Reviews

"Mary Norton has a priceless gift. She can view humans through the eyes of tiny folks and tiny folks through human eyes, and make both believable."--Chicago Tribune

    This book was a VERY VERY tough read for my 9 year old. The book says ages 8 & up. It was so full of adjectives, that both my husband felt overwhelmed trying to help her read it. Here is one sentence we just read from the book:

    "She stared in a bored way about the firelit room: the drawn curtains, plates glinting on the dresser, the general air of peace and comfort." I am SORRY to say that it was easy to loose interest due to all the descriptions.
