"As always, [Terry Pratchett] is head and shoulders above even the best of the rest. He is screamingly funny. He is wise. He has style ... Splendid" Daily Telegraph "Terry Pratchett once again succeeds in combining a subtle blend of humour, wisdom and naive simplicity" The School Librarian
From the Back Cover
TRUCKERS 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 the devastating news that the Store is to be demolished. Now the nomes have to think. And they have to think BIG...
DIGGERS A Bright New Dawn is just around the corner for the nomes when they move into an abandoned quarry. Or is it? For when humans turn up, they begin to mess everything up again. Now the nomes have two choices: to run, or to hide. Or maybe, they could... fight. But for how long can they keep the humans at bay - even with the help of the monster Jekub?
WINGS It's a ridiculous plan. Impossible. To hitch a ride on a truck with wings - Concorde. And then steal one of those space shuttle things. But home is home, and the nomes want to get there. They don't mean to cause any trouble. Really...
Hilariously inventive, marvellously witty and highly original, Truckers, Diggers and Wings form a magnificent trilogy of tales about a race of little people struggling to survive in a world full of humans: the Bromeliad trilogy.
