The second in the trilogy picks up where Truckers leaves off. The nomes continue to bumble around being amusing, this time in a quarry where life is a little tougher than in the department store. ( )

Full review of the trilogy under 'Wings'. This is the one where Grimma and Dorcus defend the quarry with Jekub. ( )

Mildly interesting book, on several levels. Cute little miniature people dealing with the world and the humans is a nice children's story - but how they deal, with the world and each other, and the way their understandings expand, are quite a bit deeper. I wasn't really in the right mood for this, having just finished another book about people arguing against their own best interests, but it was interesting enough to hold me to the end and make me read the next one right away.

This is the second time I've listened to this book in this series and I loved it even more the second time around. ( )
