A wonderful new novel from the Carnegie Medal winner. A riotous, wise, and gripping junior Discworld novel.

Up on the chalk downs known as The Wold, witches are banned -- ever since the Baron’s son vanished in the woods. Anyway, as all witches know, chalk is no good for magic.

Nine-year-old Tiffany Aching thinks her Granny Aching -- a wise shepherd -- might have been a witch, but now Granny Aching is dead and it’s up to Tiffany to work it all out when strange things begin happening. There’ s a fairy-tale monster in the stream, a headless horseman and, strangest of all, the tiny blue men in kilts, the Wee Free Men, who have come looking for the new “hag” . These are the Nac Mac Feegles, the pictsies, who like nothing better than thievin’ , fightin’ and drinkin’. When Tiffany’s young brother goes missing, Tiffany and the Wee Free Men must join forces to save him from the Queen of the Fairies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Terry Pratchett You can't find an author that compares with Terry Pratchett's story telling abilities. So funny, smart and witty. Having read all his books I am at a loss of where to turn to next and nothing else measures up. Make sure you read these books in order of publication or you miss so many references and jokes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wee Free Men I loved this book, I laughed out loud in places. Terry Pratchett, as usual, was brilliant with his play on words. In the preview for the next in the series, which I shall read, he refers to the written word being there after a person has passed on; I wonder if he knew at that point what was to happen. He will be missed - Keith

Editorial Reviews

“Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy.” -- Guardian“A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages.” -- Daily Telegraph "Funny, terrifying and enlightening and quite, quite brilliant." --Starburst"Plenty to laugh at here, not least Pratchett's ability to put a 90 degree spin on the familiar." --The Times"Teen witch Tiffany is one of [Terry Pratchett's] most formidable creations yet." --Time Out"Ingenious mélange of fantasy, action, humour, and sly bits of social commentary."--Kirkus ReviewsFrom the Hardcover edition.
