Publisher's Summary

What could be easier than preventing a servant girl from marrying a prince, especially for three clever witches? But Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick face more than they bargained for when they journey to the distant city of Genua.
For one thing, their power is limited to Mrs. Gogol's weak voodoo spells, a one-eyed cat, and a secondhand magic wand that works only on pumpkins.
Furthermore, the Godmother has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse. Does a servant girls have to marry the prince? Is that what life's all about?

Possibly the best of the Witches series

Although Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels are long-time favourites, my favourite 'series' amongst them is undoubtedly the Witches. We first met Granny Weatherwax in Equal Rites, but the full introduction of his sisters three comes in Wyrd Sisters. However, this has got to be the absolute pick of the bunch, as Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and well-meaning 'wet hen' Magrat Garlick team up to do some rather unusual fairy godmothering - and manage to shed an altogether new and hilarious light on both fairy stories and travel in 'forn parts' along the way (Nanny's postcards home are priceless !). And Granny's headology is put to its most stringent test yet in an ending with a definite twist....... Nigel Planer's narration is an absolute joy, capturing all of the characters to perfection, in particular the interaction between Granny and Nanny. Excellent all round.

Once upon a time?

This has got to be one of the best Discworld books ever, and defiantly the best one involving everyone?s favourite witches. Taking fairytales we all know and dealing with the bits that never quite fitted. How do pigs build houses when all they have is trotters? How does chopping his way through some brambles and kissing a princess prove someone will make a good husband/king? And is there really such a thing as ?Happily Ever After?? Regardless of whether you are a long time fan or someone having their first Discworld outing, this story is guaranteed to delight and entertain.
