one for me please : teeny tiny people

posted on: Monday, August 6, 2012


Do you remember the book (not the movie) called The Borrowers about teeny tiny people that live in the walls and the floors? I loved that book as a child and when I saw this awesome nail art by Alice Bartlett it took me back. I think I'll hunt down a copy and indulge.

You can nab your own copy of The Borrowers by Mary Norton from Fishpond from approx $7.07 AUD or from Amazon from approx $6.99 USD.

What were your favourite books as a child? I'd love to hear!

  1. The Borrowers! Oh I had forgotten about that book! And I think it even was a movie too?!

    My first ever favourite books were the "Milly Molly Mandy" books... did you ever read them? I thought that they were SUPER grown up!

  2. Check out the street art of a guy who goes by the name 'Slinkachu'. He published a book about little people in the city, it is awesome.
