THE CARPET PEOPLE
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Pratchett reimagines one of his earliest works, The Carpet People, which was originally published in 1971 and written when Pratchett was 17. Seen through new eyes, the story has a pleasing depth and genuine warmth. Though it’s a mature rewrite, this is hardly the politically correct neutering we might have feared from such a project: It’s sure to bring many new fans into Pratchett’s fold.
Be careful where you step when you’re walking on carpeted floors — you’d hate to disturb the carpet people, the tiny race living among the carpet fronds. When the carpet people are besieged by an outside foe, their only hope is to put their petty differences aside and band together under the leadership of a pair of brothers. (HARCOURT, Nov., 304 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780544212473, HC, 8 & up)
