Forced to leave their home because the human beings upon whom they depend have left, the Borrowers join the self-sufficient boy Spiller to find a better place to live. They journey down the cottage drain in a soap dish and live in a teakettle by a river, hiding from the human Mild Eye and trying to survive famine and floods. This engrossing fantasy transports the reader to the miniature world of the Borrowers. 1998 (orig.
