I think I was in second or third grade when our teacher introduced us to The Borrowers, a family of tiny people that “borrow” things and have to deal with the full-sized people of the world.  I really liked the tales, but pretty much forgot about it until today we I discovered Studio Ghibli, the animation house behind Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and Castle in the Sky will be turning the book series into an animated movie.

Studio Ghibli have transferred their version to Tokyo Koganei in 2010 (Koganei is where Studio Ghibli is settled) and tell the story of 14-year-old little Arrietty (Chiisana Arriety was the films original title).

This is really good news, and I can’t wait to see what SG does with the story.
