Wings The Third Book of the Nomes by Terry Pratchett

The Lovereading4Kids comment

The final book in the Bromeliad Trilogy is a little stunner. ‘Wings’ the third book of the Nomes runs concurrently in time with ‘Diggers’, yet focusses on the three Nomes and Thing who left the quarry together, yet for very different reasons. Having been immersed in the lives of the Nomes in the first two books, it now feels completely and totally acceptable to have Nomes from elsewhere in the universe, on planet Earth, trying to find their way home, wherever in the world (or off the world) that happens to be. If you've not read the first two books in the series, that will no doubt have completely confused you, so pop back to the start and read Truckers and Diggers first. This is an exceptional little series, one that will appeal to both small and big kids, and one that makes you think, without you even realising you are doing so. ~ Liz Robinson


Wings The Third Book of the Nomes by Terry Pratchett

When you're four inches high in a world full of giant people, things never go very well for long. After running into trouble at the quarry, the nomes want to go home. The problem is, 'home' is somewhere up in the stars, in some sort of Ship. Masklin must find a way to get to the 'launch' of a 'communications satellite' (whatever that is). And so begins an incredible journey, filled with peril, planes, honking geese...and a walking sandwich.

This is the fantastically funny third book of the nomes, from the author of the bestselling Discworld series.
