Outside! What's it like?
Masklin looked blank. Well, he said. It's sort of big.

To the thousands of tiny nomes who live under the floorboards of a large department store, there is no Outside. Things like Day and Night, Sun and Rain are just daft old legends. Then a devastating piece of news shatters their existence: the Store, their whole world, is to be demolished. And it's up to Masklin, one of the last nomes to come into the Store, to mastermind an unbelievable escape plan that will take all the nomes into the dangers of the great Outside.

The story is brought to life by writer, actor, and documentary-maker Tony Robinson, well-known for the popular TV series Time Team and his roles as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Maid Marion and Her Merry Men and Baldrick in Blackadder. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " not quite the same caliber as discworld... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/6/2014

    " Another book group read - definitely an author to recommend to children and adults alike. Reading aloud with junior age children would open up many good discussions; these books operate on several different levels and major life themes are covered. Not just for the kids! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chrystal | 1/26/2014

    " My husband is a Terry Pratchett fan and I've read many of his books to help us relate to each other. It is fun to see the different style and personality of science fiction. It took me a while to catch on to his sense of humor, but now I laugh out loud while I read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 1/22/2014

    " As always i enjoyed this book and Terry is the only Author that has made me laugh whilest reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie Brian | 12/30/2013

    " Fun, but not my favorite Pratchett. Even though it was geared for children, it seemed too watered-down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie Jacobson | 12/26/2013

    " I keep wanting to LOVE Terry Pratchett because my friends are so crazy about his stuff but I only like it. It's entertaining enough but I'm not ready to devour every title of his I can find like I am after a Brandon Sanderson read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 11/22/2013

    " A delightful tale on one level, and a lovingly biting satire of religion on another. Terry Pratchett is wise and warm and funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 11/22/2013

    " My first Pratchett. SO much fun! I can't wait to read the next two :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Kent | 11/21/2013

    " A book for younger readers, still enjoyable all the same. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlin Allerton | 11/13/2013

    " I rated it a five because most of my books are not as exiting and adventurous as this one and it was a good change. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kidsbookworm | 6/5/2013

    " Very Funny! We were laughing while the next person read it, too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris The Story Reading Ape | 2/1/2013

    " OK so l'm an old kid but l enjoyed this sequel to The Carpet People and then went straight into the last one TRUCKERS. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 10/14/2012

    " Short, simple, fun. Not a particularly deep book, but more enjoyable to read than Prachett's recent output. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Jones | 8/18/2012

    " Great trilogy. A really fun story, and a good thinker for youth. Very similar to Plato's "Allegory of the Cave". "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rev. Nyarkoleptek | 8/12/2012

    " This book isn't really bad, per se, it's just that Pratchett's so much better in his later work that the Trucker books seem vastly inferior in comparison. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lizzy B | 8/4/2012

    " Typical pratchetesque thoughts on life, politics, religion, and culture. To think this is a childrens book - there is so much more i'm picking up reading it as an adult I tell you! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Curses | 12/23/2011

    " I love children's lit that doesn't behave like its audience is stupid, especially at the middle school level. The language is simple enough for mid-elementary reading levels, but the humor, adventures, and philosophy are engaging even for adults. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 12/21/2011

    " Reading the trilogy, so will let you all know what I think about them when I finish. At the moment finding them enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 11/14/2011

    " I liked the way this book made you look at humanity from ankle height. It also carries a lot of Pratchett's humor, but it's not over the top like some of his books. A good young adult read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Reepacheep | 10/18/2011

    " Nomes! And starships? Can't wait to see what's next with these guys. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 9/4/2011

    " Engaging little gnomes discover theres more to the world than they can see, and even if they are quite literal about it theres more than one meaning to what they do see. "

  • 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. "
