From the First Book of the Nomes, Truckers where the nomes have to face up to the harsh reality that their comfortable and somewhat lazy lives beneath the floorboards of mankind are threatened; through to Diggers where the battle for survival really begins; culminating in Wings as the intrepid Masklin, with the aid of the electrical Thing, plots to return the nomes to Home on a Ship that will take them back to the stars where they belong, Pratchett never fails to excite.
With his amazing sense of the ridiculous and his sly, witty, ironic wordsmithery this intelligent and occasionally totally ludicrous three-in-one fantasy combo certainly does nothing to detract from Pratchett's reputation as one of the coolest and cultiest writers of his era. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"Terry Pratchett once again succeeds in combining a subtle blend of humour, wisdom and naive simplicity" (The School Librarian)
From the Back Cover
To the thousands of tiny nomes living under the floorboards of a large department Store, there is no Outside. No Day or Night, no Sun or Rain. They're just daft old legends. Until they hear the devastating news that the Store is to be demolished . . .
And so their journey begins.
From the store to an abandoned quarry - where they find the monster Jekub - and on to a place where they must steal one of those space shuttle things, all the nomes want is to get home again. They don't mean to cause any trouble . . .
A magnificent trilogy of tales about a race of little people struggling to survive in a world full of humans.
From Carnegie Medal-winning author, Terry Pratchett.
