TRUCKERS: The First Book of the Nomes

Under the floorboards of The Store is a world of four-inch-tall nomes that humans never see. It is commonly known among these nomes that Arnold Brothers (est. 1905) created the Store for them to live in, and he declared: "Everything Under One Roof." Therefore there can be no such thing as Outside. It just makes sense.

That is, until the day a group of nomes arrives on a truck, claiming to be from Outside, talking about Day and Night and Snow and other creatures.


The Boy At the Back of the Class: Onjali Rauf: Books

   There used to be an empty chair at the back of the class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it. He's nine years old (just like me) but he's very strange, He never talks and never smiles and doesn't even like lemon sherbets, which are my favourite. But then I learned the truth, Ahmet isn't strange at all. He's a Refugee who's run away from a war. A real one with bombs and bullies that hurt people. 

This is a lovely adventure story involving 4 friends and Ahmet. The author creates really strong characters who you really want to succeed in their plan.
