    Oh, I love The Little’s. I used to watch this show and wished that my house had these little people living among the walls. I remembered leaving items out hoping that they would sneak out while I wasn’t looking and snag them up and take them back inside their homes. Pieces of string, match boxes, my Barbie cups, pieces of foil and snippets of fabric were all placed in a pile; these were my offerings I hoped to give to my new friends who never did make an appearance at my house.
    As I read part of this book at school one afternoon, it brought back childhood memories and I wanted to see what happened to my nome friends who reminded me so much of The Littles. I loved how it made me think about how something I can do easy and natural can become so difficult and time-consuming: each activity thought out step-by-step. Yet, for the nomes being small has its advantages also. The nome population is dwindling and four-inch high Masklin has been left in charge as the younger generation has left, in search of a better location. Time is passing, the group has not returned and Masklin decides it’s time that this group leaves their current location. It’s a big feat as moving a group of nomes is not easy and the arguing as already begun. They are delighted when they find another group of nomes, this group has settled into The Store. The Store, who wouldn’t love to live in The Store; the place that holds everything and has lots to see and hear. There are two issues with this new group of nomes, the first being that they know nothing about the world outside The Store and second, The Store is being torn down and both groups must now find another place to live. These nomes have lots of different ideas on how to approach their new dilemma but denial will get them nowhere. They must all leave before the walls come down. It’s a great adventure and very entertaining story.
    The books! So many books, so little time. I loved this part of the book. The Store has lots of books at their disposal and the nomes realize that they are all filled with knowledge, knowledge that they will need to survive outside The Store. The nomes start to get frantic, they realize they can’t let this wisdom go to waste, it is their insight on how important these books are to their survival, that the nomes try different ways to find a solution to the book matter. It’s comical but they are clever.

    Definitely worth the money

    A hilarious novel about nomes who live in a department store. Some of this hilarity involves the seemingly dydlexic four inch tall nomes plotting to use a gnu( not a typo) to threaten humans and wondering why there isn't a sign to say the road doesn't work instead of " road works ahead". Great book and definitely worth the money.

    Fun story by a great author

    This is a fun story about a group of "nomes" who live (in hiding) in a department store and must escape to "Outside" when they discover the store is closing. We loved Terry Pratchett's other books for children/young adults, particularly The Wee Free Men on audio as read by Stephen Briggs. This one is similarly clever and tongue-in-cheek to please Pratchett fans, but I would say not his best. This audio version is, I think, from the UK and is a bit disconcerting because it starts with no introduction or anything, and ends just as abruptly. Still, the cassettes were in fine shape and the reader was reasonably good. We enjoyed this on a recent car trip (kids ages 8-12) and would recommend it, just would recommend Pratchett's other work even more highly.
