The Borrowers Chapter 11 Summary

  • Arrietty, Homily, and Pod sit down to a delicious shrimp dinner (of course, the shrimp is the size of a huge pot roast to them).
  • Pod tells his wife that he got "a feeling" again. That's a funny sensation he gets when a human is around. (Oh—he must have "felt" that the boy was near.)
  • Arrietty promises she will start to learn how to develop her "feeling," too.
  • After eating, Arrietty writes a letter to her Uncle Hendreary (taking great care to hide it from her mother).
