"Outside! What's it like?" "Well, it's sort of ... big." Welcome to the world of the Nomes, a race of four-inch tall creatures, whose lives are about to be turned upside down. For years they have lived underneath the floorboards of Arnold Brothers Department Store, existing side by side with their Human landlords, including arch-enemy, the evil Prices Slashed. One day devastating news shatters their existence - Arnold Brothers is to be demolished. Hatching the most spectacular escape plan ever devised and with the help of the mysterious Thing, our tiny heroes begin a journey beyond their wildest dreams. A journey that will take them into the mysterious Outside World for the very first time....
