To celebrate 50 years since the publication of Sir Terry Pratchett’s first ever novel, The Carpet People, Penguin Random House Children’s are releasing a brand-new special edition to mark the momentous anniversary. Featuring an updated finish, additional content and a striking gold roundel, the book will make a must-have addition to any Pratchett fan’s collection, as well as the perfect introduction to his work for young readers.

First published in 1971 when Pratchett was just 23, the hilarious fantasy novel became the start of a long and distinguished literary career. Exploring the conflict between traditions and innovation, The Carpet People contains much of the humour and concepts that would go on to become a major part of Pratchett’s Discworld series. Telling the incredible story of a whole world contained with the fronds of a carpet, this wonderful tale of magic and adventure has been a firm favourite of Terry fans old and new. Suitable for ages 7+
