A must have for every child's bookshelf.
The Borrowers live in the secret places of quiet old houses: behind the mantelpiece, inside the harpsichord, under the kitchen clock. They own absolutely nothing - they borrow everything, and think that humans were invented just to do the dirty work. Girls aren't supposed to go borrowing, but as Arrietty was an only child her father - Pod, an expert Borrower - broke the rule and then something happened which changed their lives. She made friends with a human boy...
Beautifully written, poetic and Library Association's Carnegie Medal-winning, The Borrowers is children's book perfection - it's one of our favourites!
