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)
Imagine It Believe It Make It Real
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.
Wonderful fantasy! The narrater is amazing, British actor brings the story alive!
The Wee Men of course!
Stephen Brigg's narration was suburb! Has authentic British accent and reads with great fun!
loved the story its a good funny read
The Wee Free Men
I love all the books in this series... the story is well written... you don't need to have read the last book to understand this one but it helps plus you will have fun listening to it...FYI i listened to it at work while entering non-stop-dull-data and i did have to keep from laughing a loud too much ...people were giving me funny looks down the hall ...
Yes, I would say the audio version is better than the printed version. Stephen Briggs is masterful! He knows how to bring the story to life. I was recommended this book by someone who felt the same way. Although I'm sure the book would be a good read, it just wouldn't be the same.
I have only listened to Stephen Brigg's performances on The Wee Free Men series that this book is a part of. I'm listening to the last book now, and have loved his performances and the stories of each of them. Fabulous!
Yes. In fact one of my favorite times to listen is when I'm traveling so I can listen in one go or close to it. I also like listening to them while running.
I would highly recommend this audiobook and the others in this series!
Delightfully twisted tale
Tiffany is a clever, complicated person without being perfect. She has problems, and makes mistakes but finds unexpected, educational, and entertaining ways to fix her problems.
Stephen adds the richness of his voice to Terry's creative story. His talent brings another level of life to the characters. I especially enjoy hearing his Scottish accent.
I laughed and cried. Terry always delivers surprises and twists that I dont expect.
Good book for adults and kids. Excellent themes for young people while keeping a level of story telling engaging enough for all readers.
At the top!
Imaginative story, great detail, easy to follow and unlike any other story.
Yes - the same - excellent performance; many silly voices!
One of the best children's books we've listened to .. a really fun book.
Oh Crivens! Too many to count.
It's very fun to follow the character of Tiffany Aching as she grows and discovers the complexity of the world around her. That, and the bee scene at the end.
Tiffany Aching dancing with a swarm of bees.
The Nac Mac Feegles.
Stephen Briggs' narration helps to bring all the characters to life, each with their own personality and voice.
I have listened to this book several times and I know I'll listen to it many more times in the future.
I love all of Terry Pratchett's books, but I'm particularly fond of this so-called children's series (at the ripe age of 50!). Terry Pratchett uses his mastery of the English language in very amusing ways. I often find myself laughing out loud when listening to his books. I particularly love the Nac Mac Feegles. Stephen Briggs does an excellent job of bringing these characters to life.
This excellent follow-up to The Wee Free Men, takes us on this next step of Tiffany's rocky climb to adulthood. At this point she's eleven years old with a questing mind an innate grasp of "headology" she's drawn the interest of something else, something afraid....
With it's biting humor and sharp insights into human nature this is another of Terry Pratchett's excellent dips in YA literature, well read by Stephen Briggs.
