Reason for Reading: The Borrowers is my 2nd favourite "little people" book. (Mistress Masham's Repose is my first) As soon as I saw the name Arrietty in the title I knew the book would have something to do with the Borrowers and had to read it.

This is the film adaptation manga of the Japanese anime film produced by Studio Ghibli (most internationally famous for "Howl's Moving Castle"). It is a great adaptation of Mary Norton's "The Borrowers". Volume 2 continues where Volume 1 left off and this

"A smaller-sized graphic novel has also been produced, in two parts, The Secret World of Arrietty 1 and 2. Laid out in the traditional Japanese right to left format, both volumes are in full color and reproduce the film utilizing the script and still images. The story is divided into four chapters over the film comic's two books."

3. I really enjoyed this cute story. The second volume has all of the action that the first lacks. I think it could have been distributed more evenly or as one collection. I'd read more if the story were to continue.

Although this full color comic version shows you how gorgeous the film will be, you can tell it's just stills of an animated film. That being said, it's a good way to hype oneself up for seeing the film!

A book taken from a movie that was based on a book (The Borrowers) - say that three times fast.
Since I've read The Borrowers this was somewhat predictable but it's still a great story and the artwork was exceptional. A little expensive I thought but definitely worth reading.

Second book of the cute comics of Arrietty. I have to say, it's nice to have this movie all packed up into only two volumes (Spirited Away has 5!)

Charming, clever, and great animation (illustrations). Pretty much everything you come to expect from Studio Ghibli.
