If you are a fan young-adult, pixies, elves, little people - than this set could be for you. If you have read the first 2, then you must read this book to see how it all ends. I was only disappointed to find out this was the end of the set, and there were no more. If you are looking for something to read to your young ones, or looking for something to keep them interested in reading themselves, then this book is perfect.
While one set of nomes is trying to fend off the depredations of humans with a JCB, another set had to hitch a ride on a Concorde (how hard could it be?) to Florida to catch another ride on a satellite in order to get back home to England and pick up the other, JCB-riding nomes, and then fly off to their distant home planet.
Confused? Don't be. It's a Pratchett book, which means it will be complicated and crazy, so don't try to catch too firm a hold on the plot, because it's pointless. Like the nomes on the Concorde, just hang on and don't get too worried when the floor suddenly becomes a wall. Eventually it will become a floor again, and you'll get to your destination.
"Wings" is a charming, touching conclusion to the Nomes trilogy. It's silly, it's goofy, it's childish, and it's lyrical all at once, with both Nomes and frogs having their worlds expanded:
"The Ship curved up, towards the stars. Below, the world stopped unrolling because it had reached its edges, and became a black disk against the sun.
Nomes and frogs looked down on it.
And the sunlight caught it and made it glow around the rim, sending ray sup into the darkness, so that it looked exactly like a flower."
