Description of Truckers
Under the floorboards of the Store is a world of four-inch-tall nomes that humans never see. It is commonly known among these nomes that Arnold Bros. created the Store for them to live in, and he declared: “Everything Under One Roof.” Therefore there can be no such thing as Outside. It just makes sense.
That is, until the day a group of nomes arrives on a truck, claiming to be from Outside, talking about Day and Night and Snow and other crazy legends. And they soon uncover devastating news: The Store is about to be demolished. It’s up to Masklin, one of the Outside nomes, to devise a daring escape plan that will forever change the nomes’ vision of the world. . . .
More about this book
Terry Pratchett’s extraordinary, and extraordinarily funny, book, Truckers, available for the first time in an edition beautifully illustrated by Mark Beech.
Imagine that all around you, hidden from sight, there are thousands of tiny people.
They are four inches tall, brave, stubborn and resourceful.
They are the nomes.
The nomes in this story live under the floorboards of a large Department Store and have never been Outside. In fact, they don’t even believe in Outside. But new nomes arrive, from – where else? – and they bring with them terrifying news: the Store is closing down and Everything Must Go . . .
The fantastically funny first book of the nomes, from the author of the bestselling Discworld series.
