(Discworld Novel 35)
The third tale in a gloriously inventive fantasy sequence of tales about Tiffany Aching - young witch - and the Nac Mac Feegle - the Wee Free Men.
Tiffany Aching put one foot wrong, made just one little mistake...
And now the spirit of winter is in love with her. He gives her roses and icebergs and showers her with snowflakes, which is tough when you’re thirteen, but also just a little bit... cool.
And if Tiffany doesn’t work out how to deal with him, there will never be another springtime...
Crackling with energy and humour, Wintersmith is the third tale in a sequence about Tiffany Aching and the Wee Free Men – the Nac Mac Feegles who are determined to help Tiffany, whether she wants it or not.
“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.”
Nicolette Jones, 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.”
“Exhuberant energy and humour...”
“...charming in every sense of the word. Beautifully written and at times highly comic, it is an extraordinary achievement...”
Books for Keeps
“Wintersmith is not written and does not read as a "young adult" book, and succeeds all the more for that. Very enjoyable.”
“...sure to be as popular with both children and adults as all his other books.”
“[The Discworld books] have retained the lively wit, sly wisdom and compelling narratives”
“...Pratchett's usual mix of uproarious comedy and deceptively serious thought...”
Alex Sarll, Southern Daily Echo
“He's probably the funniest writer in English today....great themes with huge doses of comedy.”
Chris Poole, South Wales Evening Post
“...bookshelves everywhere would be poorer without the Discworld.”
The Western Mail
“Funny and winning as ever.”
Nottingham Evening Post
“...crackles with energy and humour.”
“A new Terry Pratchett is always a big event and true-to-form Wintersmith is crackling with energy and humour.”
“Pratchett fans would love to find this under the Christmas tree.”
Caroline Franklin, Newbury Weekly News
“...a delightful tale...”
“This is a really good book!”
Sigurd Torsteinson, Craigmount High, Teen Titles
“This is a classic from the carnegie medal winning author. Engaging, entertaining and bursting with humour.”
“Full length novel with loads of humour, magic and adventure.”
