I have very recently (in last year) become a Sir Terry Pratchett fan, starting with "Going Postal" then a couple of other Discworld books, but this Bromeiad trilogy (Truckers, Diggers and Wings) is absolutely fantastic. A hugely engaging story for younger readers (say, 8 years+) but there are some very thought provoking themes about life and our place (as humans) in the grand scheme of things, that older readers will find engaging. This deeper aspect is not essential for younger readers to enjoy the story, but it might just get them thinking. The fact that these different aspects can be weaved together in one story (equally suitable for adults and juniors) so expertly, is a huge compliment to Sir Terry Pratchett. You really need to read the stories in the correct order (as noted above) as the trilogy is essentially one story broken into 3 volumes. I cannot recommend these books highly enough - all but the most cynical must surely enjoy reading this very rewarding trilogy. I hope you find this review helpful.

In Diggers, the nomes living in a quarry found themselves besieged by humans. In the end, Masklin rescued them with nothing short of a miracle. This book is the story of that miracle.
This book is so funny that I often found myself laughing out loud while reading it. Not only that, the action is gripping, and the ending is touching. This book is a wonderful buy.
