Product 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 this handsome new paperback edition. 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. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

Publisher's Description

The 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 Book
Don’t miss the other classics in the Borrowers series: The Borrowers Afield, The Borrowers Afloat, The Borrowers Aloft, and The Borrowers Avenged.

    I somehow missed this book growing up but at least I got a chance now to enjoy it. And I'm going to introduce it to my grandkids. Imagine a teeny family living somewhere in your house unseen, maybe more than one family, under the floor, in the attic, under the grandfather clock. The grandfather clock, that's where the clock family lives, Pod, Homily and teenage Arrietty. They "borrow" things from the human beans as they call them. Except it's more like stealing because they don't give it back. They search in the dark of night when no one is about. It was fun to read about what they use for food, to sleep in, wear and the furniture. Sometimes it's furniture from a doll house, or a matchbox or safety pins used as coat hangers. Each day is adventure to try and keep the "big people" they live above them from finding them or hearing them. But Arrietty is bored and wants to know more about the outside world. What will she find out and will she get in a mess while "out" wandering?

    This is a really fun, entertaining book. A classic for elementary age children.

    I purchased this book and I review every book I read.
