This book centres around Arrietty, Pod, and Homily who are "borrowers," small creatures who live by "borrow"ing from humans or what they actually call "human beans." I truly adore this little family and they actually make me root for them. Prior to reading this, I had watched Studio Ghibli's adaption of this book, "The Secret World of Arrietty." And I actually bought this book because I really really love that movie. At first, I thought this book wouldn't surprise me since I had watched the movie. BUT, I was wrong! This book actually made me laugh A LOT! To me, this book is like the funny version of the Secret World of Arrietty and I find it very exciting to read even though this book is actually a children book. I'd highly recommend this to anyone!
