Week Nine of My #SummerofVintageKidLit – The Borrowers!
Last week we read Happy Little Family, and you can read my quick recap in the comments of this post 🙂
This week, we’re reading Mary Norton’s “The Borrowers,” which is the first book in my reading challenge that I have actually not read before! This series comes highly recommended by one of my sisters, so I’m eager to dive in.
Here’s a summary about this book from Goodreads:
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?
