The Nomes #1: Truckers

A tale of shops, mythical places and tiny people who dare to do BIG things. Imagine that all around you, hidden from sight, are thousands of tiny people. They are four inches tall, brave, stubborn and resourceful. They are the nomes. The nomes in this story live happily under the floorboards of Arnold Bros (est. 1905) department store. They’ve never been outside. In fact, they don’t even believe in Outside. But one day strange signs start to appear: ‘Final Sale: Everything Must Go’. The shop is being demolished. What will the nomes do now?
