Publisher's Summary

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 the story 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.

Terry Pratchett does it again

Terry Pratchett is just what you need after a day of red tape. He makes the mondane funny. Carpet People lets you imagine the world we live in played out in the rug under your feet. Are we living in someone else's carpet? Maybe

Fun!

Terry again creates an imaginary world to amuse and delight us. This world could be under our own feet. We were able to figure out many of the dangers and monsters, but disagreed on the identity of the major threat to this carpet community.

Fun

In the style of discworld and maybe for kids, but when it comes to Terry Pratchett read by Tony Robinson, you have a team hard to beat.
The story is fun, imaginative, and the charectors are almost believable.
Very sorry when I came to the end.
