Nine-year-old Tiffany Aching thinks her Granny Aching, a wise shepherd, might have been a witch, but now Granny Aching is dead, and it's up to Tiffany to work it all out when strange things begin happening: a fairy-tale monster in the stream, a headless horseman, and, strangest of all, the tiny blue men in kilts, the Wee Free Men, who have come looking for the new "hag". These are the Nac Mac Feegles, the pictsies, who like nothing better than thievin', fightin', and drinkin'.
Then Tiffany's young brother goes missing and Tiffany and the Wee Free Men must join forces to save him from the Queen of the Fairies.

"There is plenty to laugh at here...not least Pratchett's ability to put a 90 degree spin on the familiar." (The Times)
"Written with children in mind, these are tales that any adult lover of finely paced, funny and satisfying moral story-telling will appreciate... The combination of Pratchett's genius for writing deadpan humour and Robinson's genius for reading is a match made in comedy heaven." (The Times Audiobook Review)
A wonderfully fantastical story enhanced by the skills of the narrator. I didn't like the Wentworth character overly but it was, all in all, thoroughly enjoyable.
It's a pretty good taster but there are so many good bits in the book this one missed out, please do an unabridged one, I for one would buy it like a shot!
"Hillarious, great book and narrator performance"
This must be one of the best discworld novels and I especially enjoyed Tony Robinson's interpretaion! Very good humour and story
