    very highly recommended for insight and fun and laughter

    Read it for great laughs then read it again for deeper insights to human behavior and growing up as a young person.
    But if it wasn't for Terry Pratchetts way of making me laugh so hard that at it seems to make lifes troubles bareable. Laughter is good for the soul.

    What a delight. This is a great story with lots of metaphors that symbolize the birth, coming-of-age, and life transitions not only for Tiffany, but the other young witches in training, as well as Roland the baron's son and the Feegles (in particular, Rob Anybody). In true Pratchett style and humor, the author manages to pull the reader in for remarkable entertainment and read about characters who are developed in even more detail than before. Granny and Nanny Ogg make strong appearances here (though Agnes is missing) and have you rolling with laughter with their sage advice.

    Another Great Book

    I'm a long time fan of Terry Pratchett and even I can admit that some things he has written were better than others, but this book is one of the best. The characters are fantastic, the humor wonderful, and the setting is of course Disc World and how can you go wrong there? With this we see the continuing adventures of Tiffany Aching, the witch from the chalk. At nearly 13 she is finding out about love and life, and a few boys as well. One of whom is Winter. Plus there are chickens!(werk)

    Thirteen year old Tiffany Aching is an apprentice witch learning to use her magic to perform spells. People don¿t want anything to do with witches until they actually need them. Tiffany is watched over by Feegles who are little blue men who live in mounds in the earth and will do anything for their HOG (Witch). Her mentor is Miss Treason who is a hundred and thirteen years old and has a lot of knowledge.------------- They arrive to see the winter dance performed and the rhythm of the music is so strong that Tiffany jumps right into the middle of the dance cutting out summer. Wintersmith takes notice of the witchling and creates snowflakes in her images, makes roses out of ice and showers her name in the snow. He wants to be human so they can be together always.. Tiffany with the help of the Feegles must rescue summer in time for her dance with Wintersmith to return the balance of nature.------------- Terry Pratchett well crafted plot will appeal to teens as well as adults. The heroine is astute beyond her years and acts as a herb woman, a wise woman and witch depending on what the occasion calls for. Wintersmith is an interesting character who learns what it is to be human though he never will be one and his infatuation with Tiffany gives him a glimpse into a world he will never be a part of but he enlists no sympathy because he is an elemental who has a higher purpose to perform.----------- Harriet Klausner

    All Sir Terry!

    Usually wonderful read from Sir Terry Pratchett.

    Of course, ' to dree my weird,' (being Scots by descent), I am always
    delighted by (and quite proud of) the doings of the McFeegles!
