    The end of the story of The Borrowers was, as it turned out, by no means the end of Pod, Homily and their daughter Arrietty. They escaped to the fields where their cousins lived, but it was a long and dangerous journey. It was up the azalea bank, through the privet hedge and across the orchard, and they were hiding from humans and being attached by insects. But at last they found a new home and adapted themselves superbly to mid-field conditions.

    Wouldn't it be nice if you could sit down with an attorney who normally charges $600 per hour and receive expert legal advice on what is no doubt one of the biggest decisions you will ever make in your life?

    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.

    What about Rowena Cooper???s performance did you like?

    She reads in a very animated way that is enjoyable but not too over the top.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Ha ha..Funny!! I wouldn't DARE make a film of this book, because Studio Ghibli is in the process of doing so and I can't imagine being able to compete with Hayao Miyazaki.
    A few Studio Ghibli Movies are: Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle and Kiki's Delivery Service in case yould like to look them up for reference. :)

    Great book! Looking forward to seeing it adapted as a movie in the future!

    This is a wonderful collection of children's short stories, read by the author, who has a delightfully entertaining yet soothing voice.


    What other book might you compare The Neil Gaiman Audio Collection to and why?

    I must admit I find it hard to compare Neil Gaiman's books to anything else; As they seem to have a distinctive style or flavor, if you will.
    But, I would say that he hints at lighthearted:
