Description
Before there was Discworld, there was the Carpet, a flat world of fibrous forests, inhabited by a tiny people called the Munrung who lived in peace for decades. But the old order is unraveling, in this first-ever novel by the late Terry Pratchett, as the Fray brings sweeping destruction to their world, and the villainous mouls have made an ambitious move to take over; the fate of the Munrungs lies in the hands of two noble brothers, setting off on the adventure of a lifetime. Originally written when Pratchett was only 17, and first published in 1971, the tale for readers 8 and up was revisited by an older and wiser Pratchett, and the revised edition—with his hilarious cartoon illustrations—appeared in 1992.

"The brisk narrative mixes sly wit and occasional puns with lively battle scenes and mysterious revelations ... an excellent entree to Pratchett's work."—School Library Journal

"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.... Small in scale but large in pleasure."—Kirkus Reviews

"Sure to be sought after by Pratchett's fans, young and old, this adventure will also amuse children who have never heard his name."—Booklist
