Description

'Crivens!' Tiffany Aching put one foot wrong, made just one little mistake . . . And now the spirit of winter is in love with her. He gives her roses and icebergs and showers her with snowflakes, which is tough when you're thirteen, but also just a little bit . . . cool. And if Tiffany doesn't work out how to deal with him, there will never be another springtime . . . Crackling with energy and humour, Wintersmith is the third tale in a sequence about Tiffany Aching and the Wee Free Men - the Nac Mac Feegles who are determined to help Tiffany, whether she wants it or not.

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 Advertiser *show more
