From the Publisher

"Mary Norton has a priceless gift. She can view humans through the eyes of tiny folks and tiny folks through human eyes, and make both believable."--Chicago Tribune
Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
There are two model villages, one called Little Fordham, created by Mr. Pott and another created by Mr. Platter, called Ballyhoggin. A family of tiny people called borrowers discover Little Fordham and move in. Everything goes along fine until Mr. Pott's tiny people are discovered by Mr. Platter. At this point the competition between the two men to have the best village becomes tense. Mr. Platter has to have the little people for his village. He and his wife kidnap Pod, Homily and Little Arrietty and hide them in the attic of their home. After overcoming shock and fright they plan an escape to return to their dream home. They succeed but the next decision they make about their dream home to protect their future is heart wrenching. The sequel is The Borrowers Avenged, "An Odyssey Classic."
