Pod, Homily and Arrietty are a family of tiny people who live beneath the floor, behind the grandfather clock in the old rectory. They own nothing - everything they have is borrowed from the 'human beans' who don't even know they exist. Arrietty's father, Pod, is an expert borrower. He can scale curtains using a hatpin and bring back a doll's teacup without breaking it.
Girl's aren't supposed to go borrowing, but as Arrietty is an only child, Pod breaks the rules. But when she is in the house borrowing, something happens which changes their lives. Arrietty makes friends with 'the boy upstairs'.

Have been waiting for this for ages!!
I don't particularly like this narrator. I found it very hard to listen to and follow, never mind the year 3 class that I am sharing this book with. I had to give up with the recording and read it myself.
Not really. A lot of the sentences in the actual book are missing from the recording. My year 3 class found it incredibly hard to follow as they had to skip half way down the page to catch up to the narrator.
