Pod, Homily, and Arrietty Clock's huge adventures have been thrilling children young and old for fifty years--and their appeal is as strong as ever in these handsome new paperback packages. While the original beloved interior illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush have been retained, Marla Frazee's striking cover illustrations capture these little people with a larger-than-life appeal.
Praise for Mary Norton's "The Borrowers: " "A book that begs to be shared."--"The Horn Book"
"The magic and charm of the writing convince children and grown-ups, too, that Borrowers really do exist."--"School Library Journal"
The borrowers are actually thiefs that rely on the 'human beans' to survive and Arrietty the girl in this family believes that 'human beans' purpose in life is to indirectly serve them. As far as she knoes there are millions of borrowers where as in actual fact they are a dying race and there are millions of 'humans beans'
this book won the 1952 carnegie medals and was one of the most popular books of its time. it features a family of tiny creatures with the name of clock and spawned five sequel novels. the most charming thing about this novel is how they portray the big people, or as they call it 'human beans'
The Borrowers are tiny little guys, but otherwise people. They get along by using junk that is lying around and adapting it for their own use. This book is about what happens when a human boy actually discovers them, after moving into their area.
Not a particularly uncommon theme, and this one is pretty dull.
