The complete collection of the classic Borrowers stories by Mary Norton.

Arietty Clock isn’t your typical little girl. Although she is little.

Very little, in fact. She’s a Borrower. She lives with her family in a large house that isn’t technically theirs – it belongs to the ‘human beans’.

Arietty and her father, Pod, spend their days borrowing the human beans’ possessions – her father is very good at borrowing. He can scale curtains using a hatpin and bring back a doll’s teacup without breaking it! The Borrowers are very happy with their life and borrowing ways. Until Arietty makes friends with a boy.

A human bean boy. And from that moment, danger is never far away. Can they avoid the great disaster of ‘being seen’?
