I'm an adult and I love this series. Clever writing about the nature of magic and witchcraft and how to become your true self. This one the focus is all about Be careful what you wish for - it may come true.

Funny, adventurous, magical--and filled with insight into human nature and how to live. Worth a read no matter your age!

My 13 year old daughter has been reading this series of books lately. Her dad recommended it to her because he has enjoyed this author's adult fiction. She has been quite entertained by it and keeps telling me about what the little blue people are up to. Funny tidbits, like swords are for decoration and they fight mostly with their heads!? It sounds like there are lots of cute little things like that which obviously bring the story alive.

This is the 2nd book of the series and Tiffany is leaving the Chalk to learn from another witch, Miss Level. She (Miss Level) is not a WYSIWYG. The monster in this story is the hiver - think of a swarm of bees controlled by one brain, and it's after Tiffany. The story has a good flow and so many connected stories that it keeps you thinking and reading more and more. The Nac Mac Feegles have a major part of the story, and you will appreciate their problems and how they "attack" them. Developing their characters and involving the reader in their lives makes for a very good read. GREAT ending as well. Looking forward to the next book(s).

Wee Free Men was a great story and this 2nd story of Tiffany Aching, witch in training, is equally enjoyable and entertaining. RIP Terry Pratchett and thank you for the stories.

Great (as usual from Terry Pratchett), but could not quite live up to the standard of its predecessor.

This is the sequel to "The Wee Free Men." However, I was able to follow the story without having read the previous book.

Tiffany Aching is a young witch setting off to learn her craft, unaware of the uninvited guest who is following along.

An amusing read for Pratchett fans of all ages. Relates events surrounding Tiffany's first "apprenticeship", revealing just how diverse the Discworld's complement of witches can be.
Despite the Library's / publisher's description of the novel, as the 'third in a series" this book has nothing in common with "Maurice and his Educated Rodents", except being set on Pratchett's Discworld and being eminently suitable for young readers, (although adults will definitely enjoy them too.)

Saying of the Nac Mac Feegle of the Chalk, "Writing stays. It fastens words down. A man can speak his mind and some nasty wee scuggan will write it down and who knows what he'll do with those words? Ye might as weel nail a man's shadow tae the wall!"
