Description

In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet...That's the old story everyone knows and loves (even if they don't really believe it). But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples and there's a new story in the making. The story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet. The story of power-hungry mouls - and of two Munrung brothers, who set out on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is flattened. It's a story that will come to a terrible end - if someone doesn't do something about it. If everyone doesn't do something about it...It is a hilarious fantasy, co-written by Terry Pratchett, aged seventeen, and master storyteller, Terry Pratchett, aged forty-three.show more

About Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.show more

Review quote

"For readers who are attracted to epic but not quite ready for the weightiness of Tolkien, this is a perfect entree; for those who have loved or will love Pratchett, it's simply a must read." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Only a writer with a masterstroke of imagination could place an entire empire of goodies and baddies within the fronds of a carpet" Daily Mail "The perfect starting place for young readers ... seasoned Pratchett fans will just revel in his wit, his subversion of tropes and his sense of humanity." Kirkus "A unique piece of high fantasy ... Now very witty and politically aware in its revised version with the new ending" Vector "The story is inventive in its carefully worked-out central conceit, often very funny, and dotted with some genuinely scary bits."
