Review:

"In the Beginning there was Arnold Bros (est 1905), the great department store...." and so begins Terry Pratchett's hugely entertaining and effervescent The Bromeliad trilogy.

From the First Book of the Nomes, Truckers where the nomes have to face up to the harsh reality that their comfortable and somewhat lazy lives beneath the floorboards of mankind are threatened; through to Diggers where the battle for survival really begins; culminating in Wings as the intrepid Masklin, with the aid of the electrical Thing, plots to return the nomes to Home on a Ship that will take them back to the stars where they belong, Pratchett never fails to excite.

With his amazing sense of the ridiculous and his sly, witty, ironic wordsmithery this intelligent and occasionally totally ludicrous three-in-one fantasy combo certainly does nothing to detract from Pratchett's reputation as one of the coolest and cultiest writers of his era. --Susan Harrison

Review:

"As always, [Terry Pratchett] is head and shoulders above even the best of the rest. He is screamingly funny. He is wise. He has style . . . Splendid" (Daily Telegraph)

"Terry Pratchett once again succeeds in combining a subtle blend of humour, wisdom and naive simplicity" (The School Librarian)
