But the Wintersmith isn't exactly a boy. He is winter itself: snow, gales, icicles, all of it. When he has a crush on Tiffany, he may make her roses of ice, but his nature is blizzards and avalanches. And he wants Tiffany to stay in his gleaming, frozen world. Forever.
Tiffany will need all her cunning to make it to spring. She'll also need her friends, from junior witches to the legendary Granny Weatherwax. Tiffany will need the Wee Free Men, too! She'll have the help of the bravest, toughest, smelliest pixies ever to be banished from Fairyland - whether she wants it or not. It's going to be a cold, cold season, because if Tiffany doesn't survive until spring...spring won't come.

"Yet another rollicking, clever, and quite charming adventure." (Booklist)
"Replete with dry and intelligent humor, this latest in the series is sure to delight" (School Library Journal)
The story and performance were wonderful. one thing that could be done without, though, were the musical interludes which never matched the mood of the scene and were generally distracting
The third installment of the Tiffany Aching saga is as brilliant as the first two, The Wee Free Men, and Hat Full of Sky. The only thing that makes Terry Pratchett books better is Stephen Briggs's outstanding narration. In this story, Tiffany learns the ups and downs of "Boffo" and the strength of myth. Definitely a family favorite!
Awesome, classic Pratchett. 4 stars for performance due to bad soap opera-esque music... (why even have it? it makes the story cheap)... and disappointed that the Wintersmith sounded exactly like the Auditors. Come on Briggs! other than that, i loved it. And i would say it's definitely not just for kids.
Imagine It Believe It Make It Real
funny magical thought-provoking
I loved the whole book.
Stephen Briggs does a masterful job with Terry Pratchett's books
Each volume in this series gets better, story-wise. And the narration is fantastic, each voice delightfully characterized.
