Publisher's Summary

Armed only with a frying pan and her common sense, Tiffany Aching, a young witch-to-be, is all that stands between the monsters of Fairyland and the warm, green Chalk country that is her home. Forced into Fairyland to seek her kidnapped brother, Tiffany allies herself with the Chalk's local Nac Mac Feegle, aka the Wee Free Men, a clan of sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men who are as fierce as they are funny. Together, they battle through an eerie and ever-shifting landscape, fighting brutal flying fairies, dream-spinning dromes, and grimhounds (black dogs with eyes of fire and teeth of razors) before ultimately confronting the Queen of the Elves, absolute ruler of a world in which reality intertwines with nightmare. And in the final showdown, Tiffany must face her cruel power alone.

In a riveting narrative equal parts suspense and humor, Carnegie Medalist Terry Pratchett returns to his internationally popular Discworld with a breath-taking tale certain to leave fans, new and old, enthralled.

What the Critics Say

"Briggs reads the prose with rhythmic glee and suspenseful understanding....This tale is especially recommended for all girls who wonder why boy characters like Harry Potter seem to get all the magical action." (AudioFile)
"The book is full of witty dialogue and a wacky cast of characters....A funny and thought-provoking fantasy, with powerfully visual scenes and characters that remain with readers. A glorious read." (School Library Journal)

    "A favorite"

    The start of the Tiffany Aching stories, and the intro to the hysterically fierce and loyal Nac Mac Feegle, "the most feared of all the fairy races." Pratchett 's storytelling is crisp, and his love for the characters and their home hooks you in.

    "Fantastic story"

    A Wrinkle in Time meets Labyrinth with Hermione Granger as protagonist. What could be wrong with that? Loved it.

    Story
    "Funny, thoughtful, girl power..."

    I picked up the paperback for my daughter after some some friend's recommendations. It took her a while to start, and then we had a road trip, so I fetched us the AB. Awesome listen. A fantastic performance of a hilarious and clever story of a girl witch finding her place in the world and becoming a true leader with a frying pan, some boots, and intuition sharper than a set of ears on a fox.

    A great story for any lover of fantasy or even just Harry Potter. Best of luck reading the Scottish bits as it was tough enough to understand with someone reading it to me, but you get used to it and it makes for the best band of characters in any book I've read in... ever. Funnier and more lovable than Bifur, Bofur, Bombor, Oin, Gloin, Fili, Kili, etc... but no dragon, I'm afraid. Never fear, The Jolly Sailor is here!

    I know that I keep rating these books highly, but I'm batting a thousand on my audio book choices. If you have a credit and a kid, pick this one up.

    Tiffany is fabulous! She's my all time favorite Pratchett hero. I wish he'd written more about her.
