When Terry Pratchett wrote The Carpet People at the age of 17, little did he know that his wildly imaginative tale about the adventures of tiny people living inside a carpet would mark the beginning of an amazing career. He would go on to become one of the world's most beloved storytellers, writing more than fifty novels, which have sold 85 million copies.
