Die Borger sind in ihrer Art kaum von Menschen zu unterscheiden, aber winzig klein und alles, was sie besitzen, ist geborgt – sogar ihre Namen. Seit Pod, Homily und Arrietty ihr Zuhause unter den Dielen eines viktorianischen Landhauses verlassen mussten, sind sie auf der Flucht. Doch kaum haben sie Unterschlupf bei ihren Verwandten im Forsthaus gefunden, da bahnt sich auch schon die nächste Katastrophe an: Arriettys Freund Tom und dessen Großvater, die einzigen menschlichen Bewohner des Forsthauses, ziehen fort. Von wem sollen die Borger aber in Zukunft etwas borgen, wenn es keine Menschen mehr gibt? Pod, Homily und Arrietty bleibt keine Wahl: Sie müssen sich eine neue Bleibe suchen. Und die finden sie in einem alten, am Flussufer gestrandeten Wasserkessel. Schön gemütlich, vor allem, als ein Unwetter aufzieht. Dass der Fluss vor lauter Regen über das Ufer tritt und den Wasserkessel wegspült – damit hat ja nun wirklich niemand gerechnet. Und so beginnt für die kleinen Borger eine neue, gefährliche Fahrt ins Ungewisse... Das dritte Abenteuer der kleinen Borger – mit märchenhaft schönen Illustrationen von Emilia Dziubak Ein Meisterwerk voller Poesie und Atmosphäre – ausgezeichnet mit dem Lewis-Carroll-Shelf-Award

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. Girls aren't supposed to go borrowing but as Arrietty is an only child her father breaks the rule.
