The CARPET. To the carpet people, its vastness knows no bounds. These tiny people are so small that their city, Ware is the size of a period. But living on the carpet can have its dangers. For example, FRAY, the absolutely terrifying natural phenomenon that destroys entire cities. One day the members of the Munrung tribe are peacefully minding their own business when suddenly, FRAY destroys the village! So Snibril, a Munrung, and his brother, Glurk lead the tribe across the Carpet. BUT, they run into Mouls, evil beings who use Fray to conquer cities. How will Snibril stop the Mouls? And where will they settle? The book was really funny and I liked it.

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 created by the seventeen-year-old nascent writer who would become one of the world's most beloved storytellers.
