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...
About the Author
TERRY PRATCHETT is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, THE BROMELIAD, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.
"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" Sunday Times "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." Daily Mail "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" Time Out
