Was it the Borrowers who lived in a big old boot?

In the first book, they lived under the floor in a big old Victorian house in England. Oh, the memories--Arriety, Pod, the boy! I adore--to this day--both the story and the illustrations.

Prell

 

OR

 

Breck

Was Prell the one that had the (pseudo) pearl in the bottle? Which was the one that had the comb that slid down the lady's hair of its own volition?

 

I think the pearls came from a later shampoo when all hell started breaking loose (Beer on Tap. But don't drink it).

 

Prell was just a really thick dark green gel from a tube if I recall.

It's this shape of bottle that I remember, but I know it came in a tube too. And at the end of this is the "pearl" thing I rmember. Now if I can only remember the comb one.

What a hateful ad. Sociopathic. What happened to the dinner, for fuck's sake?
