The sea has taken everything. Thirteen-year-old Mau is the only one left after a giant wave sweeps his island village away. But when much is taken, something is returned....
Seventeen-year-old Dodger may be a street urchin, but he gleans a living from London's sewers, and he knows a jewel when he sees one. He's not about to let anything happen to the unknown girl....
Terry Pratchett joins up with a leading folklorist to reveal the legends, myths and customs of Discworld, together with helpful hints from Planet Earth....
Vimes looked at the cover. The title was The World of Poo. When his wife was out of eyeshot he carefully leafed through it....
To the thousands of tiny nomes who live under the floorboards of a large department store, there is no Outside....
Somewhere in a place so far up that there is no down, a ship is waiting to take the nomes home....
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)
Even though it's meant for kids... It is still a great read/listen for any Discworld fan of any age.
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.
I didn't think I'd like the Wee Free Men series at first and now I can't stop reading it. Recomended for Granny Weatherwax and Tiffany Aching fans!
This series of Tiffany Aching books are not just for *children*. I'm 61! A good story is a GOOD STORY for All ages! Love the characters and the character development. Combine the masterful writing style of Terry Pratchett with the spot ON performance from Stephen Briggs and you will be on a creative entertaining journey from beginning to the end! ~KacyT
I'm not a big Discworld fan, but these Discworld Childrens books are a hoot. My husband urged me to read/listen to them, and I hesitated thinking that they were children's or YA books. I'm so glad I tried them--well written, funny, excellent adventure. I listen while I sew and I found myself laughing hysterically, all by myself and wanting more. I'll be sad when I run out of them--I need Nac Mac Feegles in my life.
My highest recommendation.
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.

Would you consider the audio edition of A Hat Full of Sky: Discworld Childrens, Book 3 to be better than the print version?
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.
Have you listened to any of Stephen Briggs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
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!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
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.
