THE SECOND BOOK IN THE TIFFANY ACHING SERIES
Something is coming after Tiffany. . .
Tiffany Aching is ready to begin her apprenticeship in magic, but life isn't exactly what she thought it would be.
She expects spells and magic – not chores and ill-tempered goats! Surely there must be more to witchcraft than this?
And Tiffany will find that she needs her magic more than ever, to fight off the insidious, disembodied creature that is pursuing her.
This time, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the fierce, six-inch-high Wee Free Men can protect her. In the end, it will take all of Tiffany's inner strength to save herself. Will she succeed?
"Pratchett's ear for dialogue is superb . . . His deep feeling for landscape, animals, kindness and courage make his adventures deeply satisfying as well as clever"
"Oodles of dry wit, imagination and shrewdly observed characters"
"A great Pratchett strength is the sense that if the jokes . . . were dropped there would still be a good, engaging fantasy thriller here"
"Fantastically inventive and humorous fantasy adventure. Fans will be sky high"
"Funny, typically humorous . . . A must for any Terry Pratchett fan . . . With its witty and slightly confusing plot-twists and hilarious dialogue, this is, without doubt, another great children's book"
Victorian London; a mysterious metropolis blanketed in fog, made up of an eclectic mix of people playing the part that life has assigned them...
Games & activities
Get the party started with a batch of bewitching star cookies. Witches and wizards will hoover up these tasty star cookies inspired by The Witch’s Vacuum Cleaner by Terry Pratchett.
Tiffany wants to be a witch when she grows up. A proper one, with a pointy hat. And flying, she’s always dreamed of flying (though it’s cold up there, you have to wear really thick pants, two layers). Read an extract from The Wee Free Men, the first book in the Tiffany Aching series by Terry Pratchett.
