Summary
The Clock family--Pod, Homily, and Arrietty--live beneath the floor of a country house in a home furnished with objects they have borrowed from the humans who live above them.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Pod, Homily, and Arrietty Clock's huge adventures have been thrilling children young and old for fifty years--and their appeal is as strong as ever in these handsome new paperback packages. While the original beloved interior illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush have been retained, Marla Frazee's striking cover illustrations capture these little people with a larger-than-life appeal.
