(Discworld Novel 38)
A new Discworld novel eagerly anticipated by both adult fans and teenage readers of Terry Pratchett’s exuberant fiction.
Tiffany Aching, the young witch from The Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky and Wintersmith is back in a new adventure featuring Discworld characters both familiar to fans (such as Tiffany, the Wee Free Men, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg) and new (meet Wee Mad Arthur, the Nac Mac Feegle on the City Watch whose only previous appearance was a brief cameo in Feet of Clay and city witch Mrs Proust - a fabulous Pratchett creation). Oh, and there's a magic book or two, a twist through time, a Cunning Man - and a Giant Man of chalk...
“Tiffany Aching fans, who have been waiting for this novel since Wintersmith, should be ecstatic”
Publishers Weekly - starred review
“A perfect witch's spell of humour, action, character and issue.”
“A joy; an astonishingly vivid and brilliantly witty creation with breathtakingly dovetailed plotting”
The School Librarian
“Tiffany is one of [Pratchett's]most formidable creations yet”
“... this title has summer reading hit written all over it.”
Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
“... everything gets very funny.”
Nottingham Evening Post
“The real fun of Pratchett's books is the line-by-line inventiveness: the jokes, aphorisms and insights ... writing at the height of his powers, he makes us laugh a lot”
