Description de l'ouvrage

1 avril 2003 Borrowers
The Borrowers—the Clock family: Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty, to be precise—are tiny people who live underneath the kitchen floor of an old English country manor. All their minuscule home furnishings, from postage stamp paintings to champagne cork chairs, are “borrowed” from the “human beans” who tromp around loudly above them. All is well until Pod is spotted upstairs by a human boy! Can the Clocks stay nested safely in their beloved hidden home, or will they be forced to flee? The British author Mary Norton won the Carnegie Medal for The Borrowers in 1952, the year it was first published in England. This repackaged paperback edition still has the delightful original black-and-white illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush inside. A charmer!
Awards: 1952 Carnegie Medal, a Lewis Carroll Shelf Award Book
Don’t miss the other classics in the Borrowers series: The Borrowers Afield, The Borrowers Afloat, The Borrowers Aloft, and The Borrowers Avenged.

Mary Norton was born in 1903 and brought up in a house in Bedfordshire, which was to become the setting for The Borrowers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un livre poétique qui fait courir l'imagination 11 février 2011
Par Jean-loup Sabatier TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
C'est un classique du livre pour enfant, il raconte l'histoire d'une famille de gens miniatures qui sortent la nuit pour chaparder les choses dont ils ont besoin dans la maison des grands humains sous laquelle ils vivent. Ils craignent à chaque instant d'être vus par des êtres humains. Bien sûr ils seront vus, et bien sûr c'est de là que naîtra l'histoire. C'est un livre plein de poésie, dont les pages m'ont fréquemment arraché un sourire pendant la lecture. Les héros sont attachant, notamment la jeune fille miniature, Arrietty, et le garçon humain.

Ce livre a eu un grand succès au Royaume Uni dés sa sortie, en 1954, succès qui ne s'est jamais démenti depuis. Je ne peux vraiment pas comprendre pourquoi il n'a été traduit qu'une seule fois en Français, dans une édition épuisée depuis longtemps et complètement introuvable! Ça me force à faire une traduction simultanée (fatigante!) pour ma fille.

Ce texte est plein de détails bien vus, fait montre de beaucoup de délicatesse dans l'approche du récit et dans les personnages, on est très loin ici de l'humour lourdaud et "grand-guignol" du film "Les Borrowers" (1997) de Peter Hewitt... Le film d'animation des studios Ghibli "Arrietty, le petit monde des chapardeurs" (2011) est beaucoup plus proche de l'ambiance, même si il s'est également inspiré très librement du livre, même si le récit du film est moins épais que le récit du livre. Dans le livre, l'intrigue est plus clairement décrite, la psychologie et les motivations des personnages plus approfondies.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Les chapardeurs en vadrouille dans les champs... 2 mars 2011
Par Jean-loup Sabatier TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Les chapardeurs ont été chassés de la maison des humains dans le 1er tome (ils ont du fuir à cause de la curiosité et la malveillance de la bonne). Ils sont maintenant à travers champs et prés. Cette expédition commence comme une sorte de pique-nique excitant pour Arrietty mais commence à devenir plus dure à mesure que les problèmes d'approvisionnement commencent et que les inquiétudes se précise, et notamment concernant l'hiver qui viendra immanquablement après la belle saison se précisent, et qui risque de les trouver sans abri en dur.

C'est là qu'ils rencontrent Spiller, le garçon à moitié sauvage, vivant de la chasse, qui les prend en amitié et les aide. Spiller aide d'abord Arrietty, en difficulté dans les champs [NB: c'est une différence avec le film des studios Ghibli: le film raconte plus ou moins l'histoire du 1er tome, mais Spiller -venu du 2ème tome- a été rajouté dans l'histoire un peu comme un cheveu sur la soupe puisqu'il n'a pas grand chose à faire dans une maison. De plus, dans le film, c'est Pod (le père d'Arrietty) que Spiller aide à rejoindre sa famille et non pas Arrietty].

Ce roman est une longue aventure en extérieur, qui bascule parfois totalement dans la comédie. Le chapitre où Homily -la mère- démarre un débat sur l'éthique, repris par toute la famille, est totalement hilarant, et finit bien loin de sont point de départ...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book, but check out the age level 14 juin 2000
Par Quaker Annie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
When I was a child of 12 or 13, I loved the Borrowers books. The idea of a family of tiny people, living in my own house and taking, for the most practical of purposes, things we'd thought we'd lost was quite enjoyable. The best part of the books, for me, were the descriptions of what they did with the buttons and baubles they risked their lives to 'borrow' - (imagine bumping into our family cat late one night while you're trying to lug a teacup back home).
Because I was a young girl who thought girls could do anything, I didn't really appreciate Arrietty's spunkiness. As the only child of the last Borrowers in this household, she's allowed to do many things her own mother hadn't done as a child. And perhaps because she can do some things her mother couldn't, she moves a step further and does whatever any boy could do.
I thought I could read these books to my 8 year old, who loves the Harry Potter series and The Wrinkle in Time books, but these books are too difficult for little kids (even those reading at an advanced level).
The language is very British and there are side explanations that are much too lengthy. Evidently I missed, as a pre-teen reader, the notion that the Borrowers might have been fabricated by the boy who was narrating the stories. (It is rather absurd to think that they were made up - I've lost too many socks and earrings in my lifetime, so I know Borrowers exist.)
Before the John Goodman version of the movie, we watched British video of The Borrowers and The Return of the Borrowers (great for younger kids). It was excellent, even though the special effects aren't where they were in the American version, the British version was excellent.
For those 11 and up (to 111) this is a great series to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A story that I'll always remember... and love... 27 juillet 2000
Par jyosefin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I first read this book 10 years ago when I was still in Primary School and I instantly became a fan. I still remember that it was my home tutor , Ms Sim, who introduced me to this book. Now 10 years later, I re-read this book and still love it. I feel that anyone and everyone can enjoy this book, not only the kids.
The Borrowers are actually a race of little people. They believed that the human 'beans' lived to provide for them. The Borrowers loved houses that were very organised. The residents of the house must always follow a pattern of behavior so that the Borrowers could 'borrow' things from the house without being 'seen'.
"The Borrowers" tells the story of a Borrower family - the Clocks. They were Pod and Homily Clock and their 13 years old daughter, Arrietty. Why were they called the Clocks? The reason was simple enough. It's because this particular Borrower family lived under the kitchen floor but the entrance to their home was behind the old grandfather clock. So the last name of a Borrower could be anything, depending on where they lived. There were the Overmantels, the Rain-Barrels, the Bell-Pulls, the John Studdingtons (they lived behind the picture of John Studdington), the Boot-Racks and so on... The Borrowers loved to live a long way off from the entrance to their home.
Arrietty was a curious girl who had dreamed of going out to see the world other than the world under the kitchen. One day, her father agreed to let her go 'borrowing' with him. One that day, she was 'seen' by a boy (a human 'bean' boy) who had gone to lived in that house because he was unwell and needed time to recover. The boy has assisted the Clocks with their 'borrowings' later on. But good things are always not meant to be forever... Things started to happen, creating chaos in the lives of the Clocks.
When I read this book last time, I was sad that the boy didn't see the Borrowers again and I wanted to know what happened after this book. I didn't know that there were sequels to this book then. A couple of days ago, I found the sequels to "The Borrowers" and I can't wait to read them. I really feel that "The Borrowers" has an interesting and orginal storyline that can be enjoyed by all.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Borrowers - a many layered classic 29 mars 1998
Par z higgie (higvin@hotmail.com) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The Borrowers is a book for losers. Not the modern kind of loser, but people like me who are always losing stamps and pins and pens. The book tells the story of Arrietty Clock and her parents, tiny people who live beneath the floor of an old house and `borrow' the things they need from the humans who live in the house above. A postage stamp becomes a painting for their wall, pins become knitting needles. Even Arrietty's parents' names - Pod and Homily - are borrowed.
Life has never been easy for the borrowers, but now times are changing for the worse. The Sink family in the scullery, the Broom Cupboards, the Rain-Pipes and even Uncle Hendreary and his family have emigrated. Only the Clock family remain, living in fear of Mrs Driver, the housekeeper upstairs. When Pod comes home and says that a boy is living upstairs and that the boy has `seen' him, Pod's wife, Homily, is thrown into panic.

Arrietty, however, is intrigued. While her parents cling to the dubious safety of the life they know, Arrietty wonders about the world outside and dreams of adventure. She persuades her reluctant parents to let her accompany her father on his borrowing expeditions. On her first venture out, she meets the boy upstairs. A dangerous friendship develops. Meanwhile, Mrs Driver stalks the borrowers, full of the sort of cruelty Roald Dahl would have been proud to create. It is only with the boy's help that Arrietty and her parents narrowly escape Mrs Driver's attempts to destroy them. At the end of the book, Arrietty faces the dangerous adventure of emigration.

Like all great books for the young, The Borrowers can be read as an enthralling story of adventure, but also contains many layers of meaning. Mary Norton's creation of the tiny race of borrowers is an imaginative achievement in itself, but she does not stop there. She gives poignance to her tale by telling it through the voice of the boy's sister, now an old lady, who tells us at the start that her brother has long since grown up and died a `hero's de!ath' on the North-West frontier. The old lady seems to believe her brother's tale of the borrowers, and yet at the end of the book she provides evidence to suggest that the borrowers may have been nothing but a product of her brother's imagination. The reader is left wondering about reality and truth. On another level, in the relationship between the borrowers and the human world, parallels with the misunderstandings and confusions which occur between different cultures can be discerned. The uncertainties the borrowers face and their final exile mirror the plight of our world's increasing number of displaced people. Long after the book is finished, the characters and the questions their story raises reverberate around the mind. The Borrowers is a book which will fascinate, intrigue and entertain.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Rating is for the Kindle version, not the book itself 2 janvier 2012
Par Serge van Neck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If I'm to pay $4.50 for this Kindle book -- no doubt about the same I'd pay for the paperback -- I would expect not to have to run into common OCR errors that take so much away from the reading enjoyment. Is it too much to ask to have the scan proofread? If it had been free I would not complain, but it bothers me to no end that a Kindle edition can be sold as an equivalent of the printed version, but not be subjected to the same scrutiny before publication. Shame.

This book is the second book in a series by Mary Norton about little people who borrow what they need to survive from humans.The borrowers from book one are Arrietty, Homily and Pod. They continue their story in this sequel. In this book other borrowers are introduced. These include Spiller, Uncle Hendreary, Eggletina(one of Arrietty's three cousins) and Aunt Lupy.
In the beginning, I found this book to somewhat boring. It was a narrative from a human called Kate. She was the girl who learned of this story in book one. She and her Great Aunt Sophie travel from their home in the city to the country where Great Aunt Sophie inherited a cottage. This cottage is near where the borrowers story started. There was a complication however. It seemed that someone else lived in that same cottage. This man was now old. He lived there in the cottage for 80 years. Kate and Great Aunt Sophie want to find out if the story of the borrowers is real or not. Old Tom Goodenough is the man who lived in the cottage. He was also the young man in the original story who was brought in to use his ferret to try to get the borrowers out of the house. He remembers the borrowers. He had Arrietty's diary and let Kate read it. The book then flashes back to the actual time when Arreitty, Homily and Pod are escaping from the big house and trying to survive in their new world.
They had to try to find the Badger Set where they think other family mambers are living. This is the story of their journey. Arrietty, Homily and Pod find an old boot and decide that it would be their sleeping area. They had to drag it with them during the day, while they looked for the badger set. You could say this was an early camping trailer. They had a hard time finding the badger set, and decided to secure the boot under a stumps root and use it as a permanent home. Arrietty met Spiller who helped them. He supplied them with meat, tea, candles and a lot of other things. Spiller would borrow these items from a number of souces. He used a tin soap box for a boat and floated up and down the stream. Things were going well and then the frost came and then the first snow. They ran out of food and had to rely only on some wine that Spiller gave them. They got drunk and forgot to cover their entrance and a gypsy who was the owner of the boot, found it and took it home. Arrietty, Homily and Pod were still in the boot!
This is where the book gets really good. I won't ruin the surprise of this books ending for you.
I found this book a little hard to get into at first. I wish Mary Norton could have gotten to the plot line quicker. I like to read about how they survived and what they used to survive. Once I got into the main part of the book, I could not stop easily. It was suspensful. I wonder if Mary Norton will allow us to be introduced to other borrowers and further the story line with Arrietty, Homily and Pod. I like these characters and want to find out what will happen to them. I guess I will have to continue and read the rest of this series. Maybe you will hear from me in a review of The Borrowers Afloat.
