A enchanting and enduring children's classic, The Borrowers is the award-winning tale of three tiny people who are big heroes. The Clock family--Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty--are tiny people who live underneath the kitchen floor of an English 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 four subsequent books are equally charming and appealing, perfect for independent readers as well as shared reading with younger children.

The Borrowers Afield: Driven from their home in the big house, Pod, Homily, and Arrietty take up life in a boot.

The Borrowers Afloat: Uprooted once again, the little people journey down a drain, live briefly in a teakettle, and are swept away in a flood. "As irresistible as its predecessors."--Booklist

The Borrowers Aloft: Imprisoned in an attic by a greedy couple who want to use them as performers, the Borrowers escape by balloon.

The Borrowers Avenged: Pod, Homily, and Arrietty escape from the Platters' attic and set off to an old rectory to begin life anew.
