Somewhere in a place so far up there is no down, a ship is waiting to take the nomes home: back to wherever they came from. And one nome, Masklin, knows that they've got to try and contact this ship. It means getting to Florida (wherever that is), then getting to the launch of a communications satellite (whatever that is). A ridiculous plan. Impossible. But Masklin doesn't know this, so he tries to do it anyway. And the first step is to try and hitch a ride on a new kind of truck, a truck with wings: Concorde.

Here is the hilarious and imaginative sequel to Truckers and Diggers. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " this was fun and easy. i like pratchett. the end. oh! but not, because also it was interesting to watch a borrowers-sized world without so much "this is the clever way we adapt!" and instead "this is our life. it kind of sucks but also is awesome." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 2/4/2014

    " Brilliant! I can never think of department stores the way I once did... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stewart | 1/18/2014

    " This was such a light and simple read. If I had children this would be a perfect book to read out-loud to them. It lends itself to silly voices and that kind of storytelling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/17/2014

    " I ended up loving it, though at first the gnomes didn't grab me. The three stars are relative to TP's oeuvre. A three for a Pratchett book is an 11 for many other authors. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lucy | 1/15/2014

    " Very slow read. Hard to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arthur Hall | 1/13/2014

    " This trilogy of "children's" books was quite actually quite sophisticated tackling religion, science, societies, and prejudice. Really, this is no more than you would expect from any other Pratchett book; I was just surprised to find all this, along with Sir Terry's stellar insight and humor in what I assumed to be books for young children. I'm not sure why I waited so long to finally get around to this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dacia | 1/11/2014

    " So funny! Gives great insight into the world of humans by looking at life through nomes' eyes. Very tongue in cheek! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julia | 1/6/2014

    " Managed to finish it but it was a very slow read. Just not that compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 10/3/2013

    " Charming story with heroes, knaves and improbable quests. Pratchett designs the most interesting, metaphorical worlds that skewer all the pomp and ritual of our lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isabelrt | 10/1/2013

    " 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 Josh | 6/6/2013

    " An unexpectedly wonderful set of tales. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron Brunson | 4/28/2013

    " Seriously. My FAVORITE book of all time. I read it every year to my 4th graders. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 4/9/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 3/2/2013

    " Bargains Galore! I need time to read more than just a half chapter every night. Very clever take on perception. More to come. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison Perry | 2/28/2013

    " Amber, here's another one for the kids! :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 2/4/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sanna | 11/7/2012

    " I can totally see a Pixar animation done based on this story. Good stuff. Could've been brilliant but it's not. "

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

    " 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 Monica Edinger | 9/20/2012

    " So, so, so clever and witty as only Pratchett can do. Arnold Bros. Est. 1905 rules! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate V | 7/17/2012

    " 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 | 1/18/2012

    " I've just recently re-read these and I enjoyed them as much as I did the first time I read them. There are some really nice insights into human nature in here. Well worth a read for these alone. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angevon | 12/9/2011

    " Read the first two but gave up before the last, iirc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Prokop | 9/30/2011

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evan Lyons | 9/11/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Greens | 9/11/2011

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne Auckerman | 5/13/2011

    " These were fun books. I love his wit and sarcasm and occasionally I was reminded of Amelia Bedelia--like their confusion over the sign Road Works Ahead. "

  • 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. "
