Summary, etc.:
The miniature Clock family has lived with the Lenders for years ... the human "beans" just don't know it. Little things keep disappearing and the "Beans" can't figure out that the Clocks are simply "borrowing household items for their own home within the walls." When the evil, scheming lawyer Ocious P. Potter tries to evict the Lenders from their happy home, the Borrowers try to stop him with a little ingenuity. Suddenly, the toaster's a catapult, the measuring tape is an elevator, the dental floss is a backpack, and the lawyer is about to meet his match.
