Charming This story is charming and a lot of fun too Little people living in a big English house Sadly they are discovered I enjoy how the story is told Two woman are knitting a uilt together and the older begins to tell a tale that her brother told her The brother was part of the story This is the beginning and the end Mary only gives us a hint of what really happened at the end It makes for a sly story This book brought me much joy I will be reading of this series The story is from the 50s and I think it can still be enjoyed by everyone today It is timeless

Beneath the kitchen floor is the world of the Borrowers Pod and Homily Clock and their daughter Arrietty In their tiny home matchboxes double as roomy dressers and postage stamps hang on the walls like. I've had this book on my shelves for a few years but I only got around to reading it after watching Studio Ghibli's gorgeous adaptation 'The Secret World Of Arietty' I wasn't sure what to expect but what I got was a tougher tender novel than its premise little people who live underfoot and steal everything they need from human beings necessarily suggested This is a meticulous honest book that doesn't condescend to its intended audience The characters are all flawed believable even endearing with one exception The miniature world of the borrowers is described in creative convincing detail The borrowers are very small people; their little hidey holes are scaled down to their own size and its only when Arietty goes on an expedition into the outside world with her father that she realises how small they really are 'Swiftly he ran as a mouse runs or a blown dry leaf and suddenly she saw him as 'small' But she told herself 'He isn't small he's half a head taller than mother'Arietty's first encounter with the little boy who has come to stay in the house is brilliant; it's both a meeting between two children and between creatures from worlds that are alien to each other Her mother's reaction when the boy pries open the roof of their tiny house is another piece of fine writing 'Homily screamed then But this time it was a real scream loud and shrill and hearty; she seemed almost to settle down in her scream while her eyes stared up half interested into empty lighted space'This is a well written imaginative and moving novel by any standards Writing for young readers and I imagine that this book's natural audience would be between Arietty's age 14 and the human boy's 10 doesn't have to be a matter of writing down and this is a good example of how to get it right

Day 17 of my Facebook 30 Day Book Challenge asks me to list the shortest book I've read so here it is I almost went with the Hobbit but then I remembered The Borrowers This is a book about a family of tiny people who live under the floorboards of a normal human home surviving by pilfering stuff from the giants who inhabit it I'd guess they are a few inches tall so that's pretty shortCertainly they weren't looking for the shortest book I have read in terms of number of pages right Because that is an asinine uestion I haven't read this book in oh 20 years but it used to be a favorite I always liked the idea of getting a totally new point of view on what would otherwise be very normal surroundings and Mary Norton who wisely spun this into a series not that I read any of the seuels thinks of a lot of creative uses for the household detritus the family of Borrowers uses to furnish their home bottlecaps become serving trays scrap paper becomes wallpaper They are the original freegans Unless you count hobos I think these details are what appealed to me as a child as the story is otherwise what you would expect the Borrowers live in fear of humans until one plucky girl is accidentally seen by a sad young boy who doesn't turn out to be so badMaybe it was because I was a small person but I always liked stories of tiny creatures in very big places A Cricket in Times Suare The Mouse and The Motorcycle pretty much any cartoon with chipmunks in it though here I am thinking Chip 'n Dale than Alvin and the Plus I just figured out that Rescue Rangers basically lifted its production design from this bookAnyway that it The shortest book I have read What a stupid freaking uestion Facebook 30 Day Book Challenge Day 17 Shortest book you have read
