Third in the "Borrowers" series, this saga follows Pod, Homily and Arriety on their adventures. 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.
