    Day 17 of my Facebook 30 Day Book Challenge asks me to list the shortest book I ve read, so here it is I almost went with the Hobbit, but then I remembered The Borrowers This is a book about a family of tiny people who live under the floorboards of a normal human home, surviving by pilfering stuff from the giants who inhabit it I d guess they are a few inches tall, so that s pretty short.Certainly they weren t looking for the shortest book I have read in terms of number of pages, right Becau

    More than just loving the story in this book I liked the idea of it You had people that were smaller than a child being intelligent and resourceful and they were taken seriously What child wouldn t love that Plus little people who make furniture out of buttons and thimbles it s just too cute.

    I ve had this book on my shelves for a few years, but I only got around to reading it after watching Studio Ghibli s gorgeous adaptation, The Secret World Of Arietty I wasn t sure what to expect, but what I got was a tougher, tender novel than its premise little people who live underfoot and steal everything they need from human beings necessarily suggested This is a meticulous, honest book that doesn t condescend to its intended audience The characters are all flawed, believable,

    When I was in third grade, I was at the library with my dad and little sister My dad asked me if I had a book to report on for summer reading, since we were there and everything The question blindsided me, so I said, Yes I had not read the Borrowers, which I had checked out the week before But I took the book and walked over to the library lady who was shelving books I told her I wanted to report on this book I read for summer reading Now in those days, library summer reading was based o

    My favorite parts are the description of the Borrowers home and the possibility of discovery at the end.

    I read pretty much constantly as a child, so I m not sure how I missed out on this one until now, but I m seriously bumming about that I would have loved this as a kid It was such an imaginative story, and I can imagine that it s led many children over the years to wonder what was living in their houses with them I especially loved that the way Mrs May told the story of the Borrowers left the fact of their existence up to the reader Those were my favorite kinds of stories as a kid I went t
