This gripping junior Discworld novel features nine-year-old Tiffany who thinks her Granny might have been a witch. But Granny is dead and it’s up to Tiffany to work it all out when the tiny blue men in kilts, the Wee Free Men, come looking for the new ‘hag’.
“Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy.”
“A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages.”
-- Daily Telegraph
"Funny, terrifying and enlightening and quite, quite brilliant."
"Plenty to laugh at here, not least Pratchett's ability to put a 90 degree spin on the familiar."
"Teen witch Tiffany is one of [Terry Pratchett's] most formidable creations yet."
"Ingenious mélange of fantasy, action, humour, and sly bits of social commentary."
