    Tiffany Aching, the boldest heroine ever to swing a frying pan against the forces of evil, is beginning her apprenticeship in magic. She expects to work hard, learn spells, and become a witch. She doesn't expect to find herself doing chores, caring for the careless, and trying to outthink an ill-tempered nanny goat. There must be more to witchcraft than this!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Stehen Briggs is a gifted storyteller and makes the disc world series so enjoyable to listen to. You will find yourself laughing out loud. I would want all of my granddaughters to know Tiffany Aching. She shows us that listening to what others say and don't say and being observant instead of running head first into a situation offers better solutions for all involved.

    At nine, Tiffany Aching defeated the cruel Queen of Fairyland. At 11, she banished an ancient body-stealing evil. At 13, Tiffany faces a new challenge: a boy. And boys can be a bit of a problem when you're 13. But the Wintersmith isn't exactly a boy. He is winter itself.

    Henry York never dreamed his time in Kansas would open a door to adventure, much less 100 doors. But a visit to his aunt and uncle's farm took an amazing turn when cupboard doors, hidden behind Henry's bedroom wall, revealed themselves to be portals to other worlds.

    Derek B. says: "A great continuation to a great story"

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Frank is always a favorite but Henry is so mag as the hero - although unwilling to be so. He show us that being courageous does not mean there is no fear.

    Armed only with a frying pan and her common sense, Tiffany Aching, a young witch-to-be, is all that stands between the monsters of Fairyland and the warm, green Chalk country that is her home. Forced into Fairyland to seek her kidnapped brother, Tiffany allies herself with the Chalk's local Nac Mac Feegle, aka the Wee Free Men, a clan of sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men who are as fierce as they are funny.

    Would you listen to The Wee Free Men: Discworld Childrens, Book 2 again? Why?

    I could listen (and in fact have) to this book over and over. The whole series is excellent. Stephen Briggs does such a great job of bringing the characters to life and Terry Pratchett writes such a great heroine in Tiffany. She is so thoughtful and kind and a great listener. She thinks for herself and does not let herself be bullied but follows the path she deems to be correct. I laugh out loud in many places.

    Twelve-year-old Henry York wakes up one night to find bits of plaster in his hair. Two knobs have broken through the wall above his bed and one of them is slowly turning. Henry scrapes the plaster off the wall and discovers cupboards of all different sizes and shapes. Through one he can hear the sound of falling rain. Through another he sees a glowing room with a man pacing back and forth! Henry soon understands that these are not just cupboards, but portals to other worlds.

    What made the experience of listening to 100 Cupboards the most enjoyable?

    The narrator does an incredible job delineating between the different characters: bratty younger sister, headstrong middle sister and poor Henry, thrown quite unexpectedly into the mix but Frank, well, Mr. Wilson gives Frank such innate wisdom in being a father and quite a few memorable quotes. I laughed out loud at the children's squabbles and my heart sighed whenever Frank dispensed his fatherly wisdom.
    What a great book for children AND adults!
