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
