The Nomes #3: Wings

When you’re four inches high in a world full of giant people, things have a nasty habit of going wrong. After their last spot of bother at the quarry, the nomes just want to go home. Aw. 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 a totally crazy (and very funny) journey, filled with peril, planes, honking geese and a walking sandwich…

  • The third and final book of the hilarious Nomes trilogy
  • Bestselling Discworld author Terry Pratchett died in 2015
  • He won the Carnegie Medal for his children’s books
