Tiffany Aching, a young witch-in-training, learns about magic and responsibility
as she battles a disembodied monster with the assistance of the six-inch-high
Wee Free Men and Mistress Weatherwax, the greatest witch in the world.
Terry Pratchett is a household name in England where the books in his satirical Discworld series for adults consistently hit the bestseller lists. Although not as well known in the USA, his books are becoming increasingly popular (you can browse a number of them at BookBrowse). 'A Hat Full of Sky' is his second book for children, following the success of last year's 'The Wee Free Men'. The reviewers rate this for 12 years or older but our son, 10 years old at the time, thought it hysterical, even though I know many of the jokes would have gone straight over his head!
