Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A hilarious fantasy, perfect for ages seven and up, by master storyteller Terry Pratchett - the first book he ever wrote!

In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet....

That's the old story everyone knows and loves (even if they don't really believe it). 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, and two brothers, who set out on an adventure to end all adventures.

©1971 Terry Pratchett (P)2021 Penguin Audio

Fabulous!

Such fun and fabulously narrated. David Tennant is completely wonderful and I have loved Terry Pratchett all my adult life. These books are like a comfort blanket and David brings them to life beautifully.

David Tennant is Awesome at story telling!!

Loved David’s story telling style! He has such a large variety of voices and is able to capture the different characters in this epic book. Would very much like to hear more Terry Pratchett stories told by David. Really really good- excellent in fact!! Most enjoyable!

Wonderful narration!

I have always loved Terry Pratchett, and when I heard David Tennant was reading I had no choice but to sign up!

Wonderful to listen to - the voices were just right, and Tennant clearly understood and enjoyed both the story and Pratchett's trademark humour.

Now do the whole Discworld series please Mr Tennant... or at least the Bromeliad!

Another great adventure!

What imagination. I think I will never vacuum another carpet. So symbolic too, of our own little world.
