Truckers

Author(s): Terry Pratchett

Miscellaneous

The nomes are tiny little people who, up until now, lived happily beneath the floorboards of Arnold Bros (est 1905) department store. But their tiny, comfortable little world is shattered when they discover that the store is to be demolished and they have to find away of getting to The Outside - a mystical place they never really believed in until a small tribe of Outsiders, led by the intrepid Masklin, infiltrated Arnold Bros (est 1905). The only escape route is via one of the huge trucks that Humans use to deliver goods - but first the nomes all have to be educated by the Sationari, and to do that the bickering between departments simply has to stop.
The plot, the characters, and the sheer delicious irony of Pratchett's writing help to make this off-beat and absolutely hilarious fantasy adventure story into an absolute classic that has to be read to be believed.
