The Borrowers— the Clock family: Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty, to become precise— are tiny people who live underneath the kitchen floor of an old English nation manor. A charmer! 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? All their minuscule property furnishings, from postage stamp paintings to champagne cork chairs, are “ borrowed” from the “ human beans” who tromp about loudly above them. This repackaged paperback edition nonetheless has the delightful original black-and-white illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush inside. The British author Mary Norton won the Carnegie Medal for The Borrowers in 1952, the year it was first published in England.
