REVIEW

A Hat Full of Sky, Terry Pratchett

Review Written By
Karen Chisholm

From the Blurb: Tiffany Aching, the boldest heroine ever to swing a frying pan against the forces of evil, is beginning her apprenticeship in magic. She expects to work hard, learn spells, and become a witch. She doesn't expect to find herself doing chores, caring for the careless, and trying to outthink an ill-tempered nanny goat. There must be more to witchcraft than this!

Right now, right at this particular time in my life, and the state of the world, it's hard not to wish for more heroine's swinging frying pans, but that aside, the Tiffany Aching series, is really an excellent subset of the Discworld books. Cleverly combining the older witches from the series, with new, bold, resourceful and extremely sensible young Tiffany, and the Wee Free Men who make me laugh always and loudly, A HAT FULL OF SKY is number 32 in the Discworld Series, and number 2 in the Tiffany Aching series, and a really enjoyable book to listen to.

Tiffany Aching, the boldest heroine ever to swing a frying pan against the forces of evil, is beginning her apprenticeship in magic. She expects to work hard, learn spells, and become a witch. She doesn't expect to find herself doing chores, caring for the careless, and trying to outthink an ill-tempered nanny goat. There must be more to witchcraft than this!

But as Tiffany pursues her calling, an insidious, disembodied creature pursues Tiffany. When it strikes, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the six-inch-high Wee Free Men (the greatest thieves in the world) can save her.

Outrageous comedy blends with pulse-racing suspense in this compelling sequel to The Wee Free Men.
