EVERY LAND NEEDS ITS OWN WITCH ...Up on the Wold, there's a monster in the river and a headless horseman in the drive. And now Granny Aching has gone, there's only young Tiffany Aching left to guard the boundaries. To stop ...things getting through. It's her land. Her duty. But it's amazing how useful a horde of unruly pictsies can be - as long as they are pointed in the right direction and can stop fighting each other first ...FROM MASTER STORYTELLER TERRY PRATCHETT.

Tiffany is a witch, as she will find out. But even before discovering her being a witch she is not a common girl. She likes to learn and she makes cheese and if there is a problem she just faces it (possibly with the strangest weapon). And she is aided by the wee free men, the most laughable and amusing people in all worlds. A different kind of children book, perfectly agreable for any age.

Review quote

"Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy." -- "Guardian""A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages." -- "Daily Telegraph""Funny, terrifying and enlightening and quite, quite brilliant." --"Starburst""Plenty to laugh at here, not least Pratchett's ability to put a 90 degree spin on the familiar." --"The Times""Teen witch Tiffany is one of [Terry Pratchett's] most formidable creations yet." --"Time Out""Ingenious melange of fantasy, action, humour, and sly bits of social commentary."--"Kirkus Reviews""From the Hardcover edition."
