All data relates to the first UK edition.

First published in 2009 this new edition of The Carpet People features a new cover and fifteen pages of coloured illustrations by Terry Pratchett himself that were drawn for the first edition of 'The Carpet People' in 1971.

In 2013 Clarion Books re-released the illustrated edition including more black and white illustrations and a short story Tales of the Carpet People, a precursor written during Terry's days working for the Bucks Free Press.


In the beginning there was nothing put 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.

The story of two power-hungry mouls - and of two brothers who set out on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is flattened.

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...

This hilarious fantasy novel was the debut novel from the phenomenal Terry Pratchett. Subsequently revised, this edition now includes both the updated text and the illustrations Terry himself drew for the novel's debut publication.
