The Borrowers lived in the secret places of quiet old houses; behind the mantelpiece, inside the harpsichord, under the kitchen clock. They owned nothing, borrowed everything, and thought human beings were invented just for their use. Until one of the Borrowers made friends with a human.

    Great book. It’s quite funny because it’s weird as something small to us would be really big to the borrowers and that is really funny. It also has a nice storyline to it.
