About this book
Puffin Modern Classics bring together much-loved stories which are as fresh and exciting as ever, with the additions here including Mildred D. Taylor's classic about growing up in Mississippi in the late 1930s, and Nina Bawden's unforgettable WWII story. All are high quality productions, beautifully designed with foil-finish covers.
The Borrowers live in the secret places of quiet old houses; behind the mantelpiece, inside the harpsichord, under the kitchen clock. They own nothing, borrow everything, and think that human beings were invented just to do the dirty work. Arrietty's father, Pod, was an expert Borrower.
