Hi. Can anyone tell me whether these books are available as a trilogy? Not as one big heavy book, but perhaps all three in a box or something? If so, any idea of the ISBN? Thanks.

Hi Surfmonkey and welcome to the site. :laugh:

They are indeed available seperately - the series was wriiten seperately betwen 1988 and 1990.

Look here on Amazon to see Truckers with links to the other two books just below. :)

Thanks for your reply. What I was really looking for was to see if they were available as a set. I've read them for myself and my daughter's birthday is coming up, and i'd like to get her a set for her own. As I said, I don't want to get one big, heavy book. If a set is available, great. If not I'll by them seperately. Thanks for the help. d:eek:)

As far as I'm aware they don't come in a boxed set or anything - but they would look pretty good as three seperate books. What a great gift and a really good way of getting your daughter into Pratchett. You might have to explain what Concorde was though. :laugh:

Hi, I just bought these three books packaged together for a tenner on ebay. Have a search if you still need them. A few dealers are selling them like that.

I had all three given to me last year as Birthday presents. Individual books & I am ashamed to say I've not read them yet. :oops:

Yeh, it worth it.
He rewrote it once found that it was out-of-date, i.e. boring.

I just bought The Bromeliad after watching the Truckers stop-motion animation series for the first time in it's entirety from since when I was a kid. Can't wait to delve into it all and drench my brain with what happens to the Gnomes. If I may digress, the fact that only truckers was made bums me out completely. I was transfixed and watched from start to finish without a break (okay, it was a large cup of Sprite). Stop-motion animation from the UK around that time was so decadently exquisite and something young and old could just get lost in. So much CGI be damned I can still lose myself in the intricate textures of the fine toothed details that exist within stuff that came out of studios like Cosgrove Hall and tell myself, "That looks real"

I hear Truckers might be remade into a movie..or The Bromeliad condensed into one feature or such? Is this true?

I have them in the hardback trilogy and have since bought them for my Kindle. I love them and think they are a great little series of books.

I really enjoyed the Trilogy as well :laugh: something different.
