Review quote

In every sense fantastic * Independent * 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 *
