Something is coming after Tiffany . . . Tiffany Aching is ready to begin her apprenticeship in magic.

She expects spells and magic - not chores and ill-tempered goats!

Surely there must be more to witchcraft than this!What Tiffany doesn't know is that an insidious, disembodied creature 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 . . . if it can be done at all. THE SECOND BOOK IN THE TIFFANY ACHING SEQUENCE

Review by

Second of the Tiffany Aching nominally younger discworld series. Although these two are at least, if not darker, than anything else in the discworld and genuinely challenge the way we think about what happens in the world around us. A thoroughly entertaining read as is always expected from Pratchett, Tiffany leaves the Chalk to 'learn' some more 'proper' witching, by the usual method. That is to say doing it first and learning about it afterwards. Apart from the potential for chaos in the school this should be essential reading for all young teens. The parallesl about what is important in the world cannot be missed

Review by

Witch coming of age story for the tweens(8-12) set in the discworld universe at the Granny Weatherwax end. Clever dialogue and the Nac Mac Feegle faeries are wonderful and lots of fun for adults especially if read aloud as bedtime story

Review by

Terry Pratchett's talent for developing his characters continues to shine with Tiffany Aching (great name!) now at eleven years old. Another un-put-downable discworld story.

Review by

Tiffany Aching's second adventure, but quite enjoyable even without having read Wee Free Men first. This is the story of how a little girl becomes a witch worthy of Granny Weatherwax's respect

Review by

Easy reading Pratchett. Good story for most of the book and rattles along nicely. Last few chapters are a little tiresome in that Pratchett overstating thing way but hey I enjoyed it overall.
