You will need:

•  A bowler or a wide hat

  Stripey tights

•  A brown coat

•  A broomstick

•  Boots

Now you have everything you need to look like a colourful, zany witch. Just don't forget to practice your witch's cackle!

  • The Witch's Vacuum Cleaner

  • Do you believe in magic?

    Can you imagine a war between wizards, a rebellious ant called 4179003, or a time-travelling television?

    Can you imagine that poor old Mr Swimble could see a mysterious vacuum cleaner in the morning, and make cheese sandwiches and yellow elephants magically appear by the afternoon?

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Sir Terry Pratchett, and fourteen fantastically funny tales from the master storyteller. Bursting from these pages are food fights, pirates, bouncing rabbits and magical pigeons.

    And a witch riding a vacuum cleaner, of course.

    ‘One of the most consistently funny writers around’
