"In the beginning...Arnold Bros (est. 1905) created the Store."
When their home, a large department store, was demolished, thousands of tiny nomes made a daring and dramatic escape on a stolen lorry - and only just in the nick of time.
The abandoned quarry they found was perfect for their needs.
At last they are safe. Or are they?
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. Worse is to come though. The quarry is to bere-opened - their new home is under threat.
A newspaper cutting sends three brave nomes off on a desperate mission which, if it succeeds, could lead them all to their ultimate home...
Meanwhile, back at the quarry, the remaining nomes prepare to defend their home against the intruders. But how long will they be able to keep the humans at bay - even with the help of the monster Jekub?
