Imagine that all around you, hidden from sight, there are thousands of tiny people.
They are four inches tall, brave, stubborn and resourceful.
They are the nomes.
The nomes in this story live under the floorboards of a large Department Store and have never been Outside. In fact, they don’t even believe in Outside. But new nomes arrive, from – where else? – and they bring with them terrifying news: the Store is closing down and Everything Must Go . . .
The fantastically funny first book of the nomes, from the author of the bestselling Discworld series.
Led by young Masklin, a small band of four-inch-tall nomes join a larger society of nomes living in a human department store. When they learn that the store is to be destroyed, rival factions come together to find safety, and learn the surprising truth about their origins. Ages 10-up.

I've been a fan of the Gnome series since I was a child, reading this again, brings back lots of memories not just from the book, but also the T.V series. My only concern is the front cover and some of the drawings inside, I look at it and think Rhode Dale wrote this and not Terry Pratchett, which makes me wonder would anyone else would think the same. Anywho this book IS DiscWorld to me, and I praise Terry Pratchett on this magnificent book
