A enchanting and enduring children's classic, The Borrowers is the award-winning tale of three tiny people who are big heroes.

The Clock family--Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty--are tiny people who live underneath the kitchen floor of an English 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?

This Book is Loved by Many not for no Reason!
By: Novi Cristine

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!
