Publisher Comments:

In a world whose seasons are defined by Christmas sales and Spring Fashions, hundreds of tiny nomes live in the corners and crannies of a human-run department store. They have made their homes beneath the floorboards for generations and no longer remember — or even believe in — life beyond the Store walls.

Until the day a small band of nomes arrives at the Store from the Outside. Led by a young nome named Masklin, the Outsiders carry a mysterious black box (called the Thing), and they deliver devastating news: In twenty-one days, the Store will be destroyed.

Now all the nomes must learn to work together, and they must learn to think — and to think BIG.

Part satire, part parable, and part adventure story par excellence, master storyteller Terry Pratchetts engaging trilogy traces the nomes flight and search for safety, a search that leads them to discover their own astonishing origins and takes them beyond their wildest dreams.

About the Author

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular living authors in the world. His first story was published when he was thirteen, and his first full-length book when he was twenty. He worked as a journalist to support the writing habit, but gave up the day job when the success of his books meant that it was costing him money to go to work.

Prachett's acclaimed novels are bestsellers in the U.S. and the United Kingdom and have sold more than twenty-one million copies worldwide. He lives in England, where he writes all the time. (It's his hobby as well.)

Cathy Chapman, September 5, 2006 (view all comments by Cathy Chapman)
"Changing was necessary. Change was right. He was all in favor of change. What he was dead set against was things not staying the same" (Thoughts of Masklin).

A fun read featuring 4-inch high nomes. The main character, Masklin, leads his small clan from their harsh outdoor life to aging department store Arnold Bros., where they discover an entire metropolis of other nomes-- nomes who believe the department store to be the entire universe and deny the existence of the Outside...

Part satire, part parable, and part adventure.
