To the thousands of tiny nomes who live under the floorboards of a large department store, there is no outside. Things like day and night, sun and rain are just daft old legends.
Then a devastating piece of news shatters their existence: the Store, their whole world, is to be demolished. It's up to Masklin, one of the last nomes to come into the Store, to mastermind an unbelievable escape plan that will take all the nomes into the dangers of the great Outside.
This is the first book in the Bromeliad Trilogy.

"Filled with wry humor that calls into question the nomes' blind faith in [the Store], the novel encourages readers to ponder the larger issues of truth in their own lives." (Children's Literature)
"The truckers ----Terry Prachett"
I first heard this book, 10 years ago. When I belonged to books for the blind. I am dyslexic, not blind.
I realy enjoyed the book then as I am doing now. The reason it took me 10 years to find, I forgot to write down the title.------ Personaly I love this book and I am looking forward to the next two in the trilogy. I didn't realise it was a trilogy. Last time i had it it must have been an abriged version.Any way its a most excelant book. humorous,
