Publisher's Summary

"Things have to come to an end, see. That's how it works when you turn the world into stories. You should never have done that. You shouldn't treat people like they was characters, like they was things. But if you do, then you've got to know where the story ends."

That's the problem when you let real life get in the way of a good story. You shouldn't let it happen, especially when a good story involves three witches, including a fairy godmother, and travelling to a faraway land to make sure that a servant girl doesn't marry a prince. It looks as though a happy ending may be averted before catastrophe strikes. But unfortunately, the forces of good are up against a godmother who has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse.

    "Short and sweet"

    One of Terry Pratchett's shorter stories, he still has done a masterful job. Tony Robinson is a great voice actor, but he gets too quiet during some of the narrative. All in all, though, this is another great story. Just do not try to listen to it in a busy and/or loud location!

    Story
    "Why can't Robinson read all the books?"

    The unabridged is better story-wise, but if you've once read it, this is very entertaining. Laughed out loud frequently.

    Lots of unexpectedly plot references to current society. Made a long drive go by in a flash!
