Description

Tiffany Aching is going `into service': to be a lady, no less, a maid in a big house. At least, this is what she tells her parents. Really, Tiffany is going away to learn magic. But making friends with fellow witches is always difficult when an invisible-being-that-cannot-be-killed takes over your body - stealing money, and threatening violence. Tiffany must use all her witchy cunning to reclaim what's hers. Luckily, she has a bit of help. What's tiny, Scottish and blue all over? A Nac Mac Feegle of course - the rudest type of fairy, and handy to have in a tight spot . . . `Oodles of dry wit, imagination and shrewdly observed characters' Independent on Sundayshow more

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 *show more
