    Review quote
    "Pratchett's ear for dialogue is superb ... His deep feeling for landscape, animals, kindness and courage make his adventures deeply satisfying as well as clever" The Times "Oodles of dry wit, imagination and shrewdly observed characters" Independent on Sunday "A great Pratchett strength is the sense that if the jokes ... were dropped there would still be a good, engaging fantasy thriller here" Independent "Fantastically inventive and humorous fantasy adventure. Fans will be sky high" The Sunday Times "Funny, typically humorous ... A must for any Terry Pratchett fan ... With its witty and slightly confusing plot-twists and hilarious dialogue, this is, without doubt, another great children's book" Bristol Evening Post
