Storyline

Under the floorboards of an old department store live the nomes, tiny people for whom things like Outside and Sun and Rain are just daft old legends. Then a group of new nomes arrive from the Outside that nobody believes in, bringing with them The Thing. The Thing eats electricity. It listens to electricity, too. And right now the electricity is telling it that the store is about to be closed down... Written by Paul Andinach <pandinac@ucc.gu.uwa.edu.au>

I was only 8 or so when Truckers was broadcast on telly. I'd read the book already and was looking forward to the TV show, but I'm sorry to say it wasnt as good as I thought it'd be. It was SO much better.

This is an extremely faithful adaptation of Terry Pratchett's wonderful novel. They've captured the characters perfectly and it's impossible to imagine anyone but Debra Gillet as Grimma, the world's first feminist nome.

I would recommend this to everyone. Kids will love the wondeful stop-motion animation, and many adults will get a kick out of Terry Pratchett's hilarious dialogue and his devilish humour
