Hilariously inventive, marvellously witty and highly original, THE BROMELIAD is a magnificent trilogy of tales about a race of little people struggling to survive in a world full of humans.
Terry Pratchett was the acclaimed creator of the global bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983. In all, he was the author of over fifty bestselling books. His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, as well as being awarded a knighthood for services to literature. He died in March 2015.
First published individually in 1989 and 1990, The Bromeliad Trilogy: Truckers, Diggers, Wings by Terry Pratchett tells the story of a small band of four-inch-tall nomes, led by young Masklin, who join a larger society of nomes living in a human department store. When they learn that the Store is to be destroyed, various rival factions come together to find safety, and learn the surprising truth about their origins. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
