Praise for Wintersmith

“Pratchett's one-liners, the comic dialogue of the Feegles, the satire about teenagers and the credulousness of the ordinary folk make for a characteristically entertaining mix”

The Sunday Times

“Terry Pratchett kicks the bejaysus out of JK Rowling . . . If you haven't read Pratchett before then give yourself a treat and buy this book”

In Dublin

“Exhuberant energy and humour”

The Children's Bookseller

“Charming in every sense of the word. Beautifully written and at times highly comic, it is an extraordinary achievement”

Books for Keeps

“Sure to be as popular with both children and adults as all his other books”

Croydon Advertiser

“Lively wit, sly wisdom and compelling narratives”

Leicester Mercury

“Pratchett's usual mix of uproarious comedy and deceptively serious thought”

Southern Daily Echo

“He's probably the funniest writer in English today . . . great themes with huge doses of comedy”
