It's hard to find fault with the world-building of Terry Pratchett! In this book we meet nomes that have never been anywhere but the Outside, and nomes that have never known anything but the inside of a British department store (circa the 1990s). Their world is adjacent to that of humans, but without being able to communicate directly with them, the nomes are left to figure out the rules of the world using only their observations and written documents, including signs that say inscrutable things like "Fire Sale" and "Everything Must Go."

A lively adventure to charm kids of all ages. ( )

I remember reading these books as a teenager and thought Milly would enjoy them - we worked our way through all 3 as bedtime reads. Actually a lot of the humour assumes adult knowledge of the world of work and shops etc so it's less funny for kids, but still lots of fun. In this first one some Nomes move from the side of the road to live in a department store where all the nomes worship the store's founder. ( )

Full review of the triology under 'Wings'. This is the one where Masklin meets the Store Nomes, and Everything Must Go. ( )
