The witches are my favorite and this one, with its upturning of fairy tales, is so much fun! I love how Terry Pratchett expects his readers to be half-way intelligent. Nothing is given away - you must pay attention Dear Reader, and keep up! I have a special fondness for the footnotes - there aren't as many of them in this book as I'd like, but they are still fun.
