Terry Pratchett: The Wee Free Men

Hi

Another Terry Pratchett novel!
The Wee Free Men is the first novel of four about the young witch Tiffany Aching. These novels are aimed at teens, but I can guarantee you that I enjoyed it very much.
Completely new cover art for this series, and I like it!
My copy has 327 pages.
You can find my other reviews of Terry Pratchett’s novels here.

 “Every land needs its own witch …
Up on the Wold, there’s a monster in the river and a headless horseman in the drive. And now Granny Aching has gone, there's only young Tiffany Aching left to guard the boundaries. To stop … things getting through.
It's her land. Her duty.
But it's amazing how useful a horde of unruly pictsies can be - as long as they are pointed in the right direction and can stop fighting each other first …”

I LOVE Tiffany. She’s witty, smart, a bit of a potty-mouth, she’s proud but she’s also a bit troubled by her own feelings.
The reason she wants her brother back is because he is her brother. It has nothing to do with love because he’s a drooling, sticky toddler, it has everything to do with him being her brother. I love that about her. She’s so honest.
Her wit and the situations she encounters are just excuses are fantastic.
And The Wee Free Men! Oh, they are just brilliant! Hilarious!
Together with her ‘wise mentor’, the toad, they are a perfect team to help Tiffany.

The Wee Free Men is a very funny and intelligent book, recommended for everyone.
This is a perfect novel to start with because of the new cast of characters and the ease with which it reads. And from here you can move on to the almost 50 other books!

I can’t say enough good things about this one.

Happy reading.
