《借东西的小人》

The Borrowers—the Clock family: Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty, to be precise—are tiny people who live underneath the kitchen floor of an old English country 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 British author Mary Norton won the Carnegie Medal for The Borrowers in 1952, the year it was first published in England.

借东西的小女孩阿瑞埃蒂在门外草丛里被小男孩看见。好心的小男孩开始帮助这一家小人借东西,还充当信使,为他们和住在别处的亲戚送信。但好景不长,女管家也发现了小人一家,她关住小男孩,找来警察、猫和捕鼠专家对付小人。万分危急之际,小人一家是如何成功逃脱人类的追捕的呢?
