Description

Witches are odd. That much is clear to Tiffany. But she likes them...In an odd sort of way. Just as she likes Roland...In a friend sort of way (which most certainly isn't odd). But Tiffany hasn't really got time to think about Roland, because she has accidentally danced with Winter himself - the Wintersmith. And now the Wintersmith has a bit of a crush on Tiffany. According to her friend Daft Wullie, if Tiffany kisses the Wintersmith (an awful thought), her nose turns blue and fall off. According to the witches, if she doesn't shake off her admirer, there will never be another springtime..."Characteristically entertaining." (Sunday Times).show more

Review quote

"Pratchett's one-liners, the comic dialogue of the Feegles, the satire about teenagers and the credulousness of the ordinary folk make for a characteristically entertaining mix" The Sunday Times "Terry Pratchett kicks the bejaysus out of JK Rowling ... If you haven't read Pratchett before then give yourself a treat and buy this book" In Dublin "Exhuberant energy and humour" The Children's Bookseller "Charming in every sense of the word. Beautifully written and at times highly comic, it is an extraordinary achievement" Books for Keeps "Sure to be as popular with both children and adults as all his other books" Croydon Advertisershow more
