From the Back Cover
There's trouble on the Aching farm - a monster in the river, a headless horseman in the driveway and nightmares spreading down from the hills. And now Tiffany Aching's little brother has been stolen by the Queen of the Fairies (although Tiffany doesn't think this is entirely a bad thing).

Tiffany's got to get him back. To help her, she has a weapon (a frying pan), her granny's magic book (well, Diseases of the Sheep, actually) and -

'Crivens! Whut aboot us, ye daftie!'

- oh, yes. She's also got the Nac Mac Feegle, the Wee Free Men, the fightin', thievin', tiny blue-skinned pictsies who were thrown out of Fairyland for being Drunk and Disorderly . . .

A wise, witty and wonderfully inventive adventure set in the Discworld(c).


Passed on to me by a friend to share with bookcrossers.

Thank you! I haven't read this one yet, nor has my daughter, and we both love Pratchett's books.

A hardback, but I'll fit it into my bag for the big trip bhome.

Oooh, look at that, willya? My wings have magically been replenished!

I enjoyed this book (and so did my daughter). I actually met Terry Pratchet once. He was sitting on a landing at Bruce TAFE, reading a Tom Clancy technothriller.

This book. A nice little addition to the awesome Discworld opus. Nothing we haven't seen before, but it was good to see the character and society of the pictsies developed.

I like the way that witch magic isn't always magic, just clear thinking. And the other sort doesn't require intelligence "otherwise wizards wouldn't be able to do it."

I'll pass this on at our next booking.

How am I possibly meant to resist picking up books at the Canberra Meetup when there's a Terry Pratchett I haven't read? No will-power at all, I tell you!

This will probably be read by my dad before I get to it. No doubt the whole house will hear him constantly chuckling to himself as he reads.

This has passed through the hands of both my dad and a workmate of his. Would it kill them to make a journal entry?

Anyway, I polished this treasure off in a day. It made a delightful change from all the uni reading. As always, Terry Pratchett is at his witty best. I liked the subtle way he dealt with important issues for young people, like dealing with the death of someone close to you. He does it in such a sensitive, funny way that you hardly even notice.

The Nac Mac Feegle have certainly headbutted a place for themselves in my heart.
