The Borrowers live in the secret places of quiet old houses; behind the mantelpiece, inside the harpsichord, under the kitchen clock. They own nothing, borrow everything, and think that human beings were invented just to do the dirty work. Arrietty's father, Pod, was an expert Borrower. He could scale curtains using a hatpin, and bring back a doll's teacup without breaking it. Girls weren't supposed to go borrowing but as Arrietty was an only child her father broke the rule, and then something happened which changed their lives. She made friends with the human boy living in the house... -


What a wonderful and delightful tale! Who hasn't heard of the borrowers? Between the books, T.V show and movie it has been a much loved family adventure for years! So I was thrilled to be able to get a chance to read The Borrowers again.
