A Bright New Dawn is just around the corner for thousands of tiny nomes when they begin to move into the ruined buildings of an abandoned quarry. Or is it? Soon strange things start to happen. Like the tops of puddles growing hard and cold, and the water coming down from the sky in frozen bits. Then humans appear and they really mess everything up. But how long will the nomes be able to keep the humans at bay: even with the help of the monster Jekub? A hilarious sequel to Truckers. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hope Kuniholm | 2/12/2014

    " Loved Truckers, Diggers, and Wings. Who doesn't love reading about a magical world hidden within our normal world with we humans completely oblivious? Loved the ingenuity involved with nomes escaping from between the floors and walls of a department store and fleeing out to the countryside only to have to deal with complete unknowns out there. The truck driving was great!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Hunt | 2/11/2014

    " Absolutely one of the best things I have ever read, enjoyed every minute, every word. I so wanted to live with the nomes! A classic book for children and perfect for childish adults. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rene | 2/11/2014

    " I just love these little guys! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 2/8/2014

    " It's hard not to like a series of books based on the premise that gnomes come from outer space, let alone one that links that idea to tiny bromeliad-dwelling frogs venturing beyond their tiny flower to the larger world beyond. These books are a bit slower moving than Pratchett's Discworld novels but still full of Pratchett's excellent observations about human nature, questions about religion, and spatial awareness. Pratchett can write an ending like no one else (narratively satisfying, indeed), and the ending of the second book is exquisitely rendered. All in all worth the read, especially the second book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Willa Grant | 1/20/2014

    " I think I am just too much of a Discworld fan to really like this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 1/16/2014

    " A funny story about elflike beings stranded here on Earth that eventually find a way to return to their home in the stars. A lot of witty British humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 1/12/2014

    " This was a very fast read, because the plot just kept moving right along; the characters were fascinating and the story was very funny. I liked having all three books in the series in one volume; it sure helped to not forget what had gone on in the previous book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sapote3 | 12/31/2013

    " I love Terry Pratchett, but this book kept beating me over the head with a very preachy metaphor about space, and that I cannot abide. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dani | 12/9/2013

    " not bad, although I definitely prefer the Discworld books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evan Lyons | 12/1/2013

    " An amazing read. I liked the nomes' interactions with eachother and how very much like humans they are, despite thinking they're totally different from us. I especially like the sections with the frogs in the third book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Theresa Abney | 11/25/2013

    " I was completely uninvested in the characters. There were some humorous moments, but the DiscWorld series is far better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chasy | 11/19/2013

    " This is my all-time favorite Terry Pratchett book! Even more than the Tiffany Aching series. It's humorous, profound and thought-provoking all at once. Excellent read. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sps | 9/28/2013

    " 'Yea, and close to the buses.' "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate V | 5/31/2013

    " Fantastic series by Sir T - once begun the trilogy has to be finished. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Prokop | 2/15/2013

    " This is a fantastic book to read to children and to just read (OK, yes I do tend to read ahead) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isabelrt | 12/14/2012

    " It's a children's book, or so they say, but I'd say it's enjoyable at all ages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 4/9/2012

    " These are my absolute favorite Terry Pratchett books. We work so hard to filter our worlds that we miss really important things just out of our vision. Sometimes, you just need a little black box with flashing lights to explain it to you properly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie Lisle | 3/22/2012

    " Pratchett never fails - he always makes me laugh! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 12/22/2011

    " These three children's book made me weep and want to explore the world! Seriously, there is more here than just some nomes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 10/17/2011

    " The Bromeliad is about half way between 'Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy" and 'The borrowers' A group of tiny nomes ( like garden gnomes but alive)are evited from a department store about to be closed. This is not great literature, but it is both funny and entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 9/23/2011

    " didn't finish it...not sure specifically why "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Greens | 9/1/2011

    " don't know how any one couldn't love these.stories "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 5/9/2011

    " This, in my opinion, is Terry Pratchett's masterpiece. It's supposedly a children's book, but the themes are definitely beyond what most children can comprehend. They are beyond what most adults can understand. It's a children's book so it's funny and cute. Don't be fooled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Watoosa | 2/19/2011

    " I love everything I've read by TP, but there was something about this book by him, as with The Amazing Maurice, that I just really took to heart. Also, very funny. Sophisticated ideas without being high-falutin'. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 9/9/2010

    " Why have I put off reading Pratchetts early kids' books for so long? I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to. Sure, it isn't up to his more recent stuff, but it's a lot better than early Discworld. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany | 7/25/2009

    " Pratchett tells the story of gnomes from outside who meet gnomes in a department store. They escape into the outside world and try to find a safe place from people. They were fun books, but the first one was the best. "
