Publisher's Summary

Eleven-year-old Tiffany Aching wants to be a real witch. But a real witch doesn't casually step out of her body, leaving it empty. Tiffany does, and there's something just waiting for a handy body to take over - something ancient and horrible, which can't die. Now Tiffany's got to learn to be a real witch quickly, with the help of arch-witch Mistress Weatherwax and the truly amazing Miss Level."Crivens! And us!"Oh, yes. And the Nac Mac Feegle, the rowdiest, toughest, smelliest bunch of fairies ever to be thrown out of Fairyland for being drunk at two in the afternoon. They'll fight anything.

Now I'm Hooked...

I love Terry Pratchett books and love listening to a book at bedtime - so this is my perfect find! The book itself is typical pratchett, well written and good story. Have to say though still prefer the earlier books.

Stephen Briggs is good but I would have preferred Tony Robinson -he seems to bring the characters to life a bit better.

Still a good listen though - here's too many more to come!

Very Enjoyable

Would you consider the audio edition of A Hat Full of Sky to be better than the print version?

Having not read the book prior to listening I cant say how well it translates to audio though I thought that Brigg's interpretation of the story was really good.


What did you like best about this story?

Despite this being a story "for children" (and being in the "Children's Discworld Series") this was thoroughly enjoyable for an adult. There were aspects of humour that are identifiably Pratchett and kept me laughing all along the way.


Have you listened to any of Stephen Briggs’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've listened to Brigg's version of Theif of Time, and his style suits the Discworld series very well. He personalises the characters brilliantly.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did enjoy listening to this and it has made me consider reading/listening to the rest of the Tiffany series. If the rest of them are as good as this, then it'll be a good decision.
