This is the last book of the Bromeliad trilogy, written for children. In this book, Masklin and two other nomes make their way to Florida so that their computer can communicate with a space shuttle...

Very well written, with some humour and lots of wry observations of life, typical of Pratchett. Most enjoyable, and a great end to the trilogy. Much best to have read the other two books (Truckers and Diggers) first as it would not make much sense without them. suitable to read to children from the age of about six or seven, or for older children or teens (or, indeed, adults).

After reading the Ramona books and Narnia together, by youngest son and I decided to read these. They were ok... but then he didn't want to have our special reading time together anymore... :( ( )
