Pod, Homily, and Arrietty are a family of tiny people who live beneath the floor, behind the grandfather clock in the old rectory. They own nothing - everything they have is borrowed from the human beans, who don't even know they exist. Download and start listening now!

    " I realized after I started reading this book that I had never read this one as a kid. It was The Littles that I was obsessed with. I think there was even a cartoon component to that one. Anyway, this still inspired so much and I can see why it is a classic. It is a bit dated, but Arrietty is such a likable character. It's also fun to think about all of the things that go missing and to try and wonder how you could use them if you were a Borrower. I read it for my Tween Book & Movie club it was interesting to compare it to The Secret World of Arrietty. "

    " I loved this series as a girl. Tiny people living in our house using our lost items for furniture. I don't remember much more. I just remember loving it. "

    " Re-read this before and after seeing the new japanimation film. It has stood up very well to the years, and I enjoyed the read. As an adult, I was more aware of the framework of a child, being told a story by and old lady, who had herself been told the story by another child long ago. Well worth it to go back and read again.

    " I know I liked The Borrowers when I read it as a kid, but I couldn't get into it reading it to my daughter. Not a lot actually happens in this book, and a lot of what does happen hinges on alcoholism as a key plot point. Eh. We did enjoy pretending to be Borrowers and imagining what objects around the house we would steal to repurpose! "
