In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet . . . That's the old story everyone knows and loves. 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 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 . . . First published in 1971, this hilarious and wise novel marked the debut of the phenomenal Sir Terry Pratchett. Years later, Sir Terry revised the work, and this special collectable edition includes the updated text, his original color and black-and-white illustrations, and an exclusive story--a forerunner to The Carpet People.

Read this with my eight year old and it was a fabulous introduction to the word play of Pratchett. A fantastic adventure that spurred more imaginative stories after we read it, couldn't have asked for a better way to start her love of wonderful contemporary authors.
