Publisher's Summary

Up on the chalk downs they call The Wold, witches are banned - ever since the Baron's son vanished in the woods. Anyway, as all witches know, chalk's no good for magic.
Nine-year-old Tiffany Aching thinks her Granny Aching - a wise shepherd - might have been a witch, but now Granny Aching is dead, and it's up to Tiffany to work it all out when strange things begin happening: a fairy-tale monster in the stream, a headless horseman, and, strangest of all, the tiny blue men in kilts, the Wee Free Men, who have come looking for the new 'hag'. These are the Nac Mac Feegles, the pictsies, who like nothing better than thievin', fightin' and drinkin'.
Then Tiffany's young brother goes missing and Tiffany and the Wee Free Men must join forces to save him from the Queen of the Fairies.

Well worth a listen

Great plot, links well with favourites from the main Discword novels, all ages should enjoy. The narration by Stephen Briggs is excellent, looking forward to the sequels.

Thoughtful, charming and wickedly funny

Fabulous story, brilliantly read by Stephen Briggs. Don't be put off by it being a 'Children's Book' either... yes, youngsters will love it, but anyone who loves fairy tales, adventures, drama and comedy will love it too.

Strangely familiar characters appear and you'll find yourself in the midst of a dream world... and if you're like me, then you'll savour the end and feel a bit sad when it's finished.
