Summary

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards, Children's Book of the Year, 2007. Tiffany Aching is a trainee witch now working for the seriously scary Miss Treason. But when Tiffany witnesses the Dark Dance, the crossover from summer to winter, she does what no one has ever done before: she leaps into the dance. And into the oldest story there is. She draws the attention of the Wintersmith himself....
As Tiffany-shaped snowflakes hammer down on the land, can Tiffany deal with the consequences of her actions - even with the help of Granny Weatherwax and the Nac Mac Feegle, the fightin', thievin' pictsies who are prepared to lay down their lives for their "big wee hag"?

Critic reviews

"Pratchett's one-liners, the comic dialogue of the Feegles, the satire about teenagers and the credulousness of the ordinary folk make for a characteristically entertaining mix." ( Sunday Times)

I wish it was longer

Tony Robinson is the only narrator I think of for terry Pratchett book, he's amazing, especially the voices. I loved it.

Wait for the unabridged version

Another good Pratchett, the third in the Tiffany Aching series with the six-inch high, kilt-wearing, tattooed fighting Pictsies.
This time Tiffany is fighting but falling a bit in love with Winter, as the Wee Free Men help Prince Roland race to rescue Summer, and in true Pratchett absurdism, there is also a tartan-wearing sentient cheese, Horace.
I *love* Pratchett and his melding of old Celtic folklore, as well as the expressive reading of Tony Robinson, but the abridgment misses some salient plot points.
So, OK for an abridged version, but wait for the unabridged.
