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 author Mary Norton won the Carnegie Medal for The Borrowers in 1952, the year it was first published in England.
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.
When evil lawyer Ocious Potter decides to tear down Pete Lender's house, he finds his plans being thwarted by the Borrowers, four little people who live beneath the floorboards of Pete's house.
Miniature people who live in an old country house by borrowing things from the humans are forced to emigrate from their home under the clock.
In this delightful, funny, and moving first novel, a librarian and a young boy obsessed with reading take to the road. Lucy Hull, a young children's librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both a kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten- year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home. The precocious Ian is addicted to reading, but needs Lucy's help to smuggle books past his overbearing mother, who has enrolled Ian in weekly antigay classes with celebrity Pastor Bob. Lucy stumbles into a moral dilemma when she finds Ian camped out in the library after hours with a knapsack of provisions and an escape plan. Desperate to save him from Pastor Bob and the Drakes, Lucy allows herself to be hijacked by Ian. The odd pair embarks on a crazy road trip from Missouri to Vermont, with ferrets, an inconvenient boyfriend, and upsetting family history thrown in their path. But is it just Ian who is running away? Who is the man who seems to be on their tail? And should Lucy be trying to save a boy from his own parents?
Driven from their home in the big house, Pod, Homily, and Arrietty take up life in a boot.
'The first rule of Borrowing is that a Borrower must never be seen.' The Borrowers are tiny people who live under the floor of the Lender family's house. A nasty lawyer, Ocious P. Potter wants to pull down the Lenders' home. Then young Pete Lender finds Arrietty Clock, a Borrower, and they join together to try to stop him. But can they save the house? And will the Borrowers escape safely from the dangerous 'human beans'? The Borrowers has been a great favourite with English children for many years. Recently it was made into a spectacular film starring John Goodman.
