But as Tiffany pursues her calling, an insidious, disembodied creature pursues Tiffany. When it strikes, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the six-inch-high Wee Free Men (the greatest thieves in the world) can save her.
Outrageous comedy blends with pulse-racing suspense in this compelling sequel to The Wee Free Men.

"Compelling and hilarious. Stephen Briggs's superb narration brings to life the trials, setbacks, and triumphs of Tiffany, as well as Pratchett's trademark humor. Briggs's performance is finely tuned and gives clear nuance to the characters." (AudioFile)
Yet another nail-biting story by Terry Pratchett and a masterful performance by Stephen Briggs. I bought this book a few days ago and now have to wait a whole month before I can continue the adventures of Tiffany and the Wee Free Men. Hooray for witches and common sense!
Loved every moment of it.
I also appreciated it more after reading Pratchett's short story in A Blink of the Screen, which features many of the same characters, in another annual witches' trials.
Even though it's meant for kids... It is still a great read/listen for any Discworld fan of any age.
Say something about yourself!
One of Terry Pratchett's best and Stephen Briggs shows, yet again, that he might be the best narrator on the planet.
I have earned my repeat listener badge with this book... And all the other of the series. I love Tiffany and her determination. And all the witches that preform everyday magic, because that's what witches do.
Terry Pratchett always makes me smile with my heart.
