    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 ... Show more

Movie was better

by Judith K on Sep 27, 2013

I read this book as a child and thoroughly enjoyed it! My memory must be playing tricks---I went through the entire book waiting for the good stuff---but never got there! I think the problem is, that by today's standards this is a very tame story. Kids see rougher stuff than this in their computer games, or the six o'clock news.

Excellent for a "Read Aloud"

by wheezie on Sep 3, 2007

I used this book for "Read Aloud" time right after my 4th graders came back from lunch and they loved it!! Everyday we read a chapter and they were truly excited to hear about the adventures of the little people and speculating on what was going to happen next. Some of the items used for furniture or drinking mentioned in the book (such as thimbles) needed to be explained but that added to their understanding of just how big the characters were in the book. I would recommend it to read to any students or add to your library for them to read alone.
