In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet... 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 Munrung brothers, who set out on an amazing adventure. 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...
Co-written by Terry Pratchett, aged seventeen, and master storyteller, Terry Pratchett, aged forty-three.

A unique piece of high fantasy...now very witty and politically aware in its revised version with the new ending - Vector
Mouth-watering attention to names and place names add greatly to the story's enjoyment factor.The story itself - part saga, legend and adventure - swings along at a fair old clatter. Terry Pratchett's writing is vivid and immediate . . . For young readers unaware of Pratchett's oeuvre, The Carpet People is a fine introduction - Junior Bookshelf
The concept is fascinating and is told with Pratchett's customary wit plus touches of cynicism. It's a winner - The School Librarian
