Series: Bromeliad, the
To the thousands of tiny nomes living under the floorboards of a large department store, there is no Outside. No Day or Night, no Sun or Rain. They're just daft old legends. Until the devastating news that the Store is to be demolished. Now the nomes have to think. And they have to think BIG...
A Bright New Dawn is just around the corner for the nomes when they move into an abandoned quarry. Or is it? For when humans turn up, they begin to mess everything up again. Now the nomes have two choices: to run, or to hide. Or maybe, they could... fight. But for how long can they keep the humans at bay - even with the help of the monster Jekub?
It's a ridiculous plan. Impossible. To hitch a ride on a truck with wings - Concorde. And then steal one of those space shuttle things. But home is home, and the nomes want to get there. They don't mean to cause any trouble. Really...
Hilariously inventive, marvellously witty and highly original, Truckers, Diggers and Wings form a magnificent trilogy of tales about a race of little people struggling to survive in a world full of humans: the Bromeliad trilogy.
