"Pratchett's unique blend of comedy and articulate insight is at its vibrant best. Full of rich humor, wisdom, and eventfulness." --Horn Book (starred review)
By beloved and bestselling Terry Pratchett, this is the third in a series of Discworld novels starring the young witch Tiffany Aching.
When the Spirit of Winter takes a fancy to Tiffany Aching, he wants her to stay in his gleaming, frozen world. Forever. It will take all the young witch's skill and cunning, as well as help from the legendary Granny Weatherwax and the irrepressible Wee Free Men, to survive until Spring.
Because if Tiffany doesn't make it to Spring, Spring won't come for anyone.
"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" The Sunday Times "Terry Pratchett kicks the bejaysus out of JK Rowling ... If you haven't read Pratchett before then give yourself a treat and buy this book" In Dublin "Exhuberant energy and humour" The Children's Bookseller "Charming in every sense of the word. Beautifully written and at times highly comic, it is an extraordinary achievement" Books for Keeps "Sure to be as popular with both children and adults as all his other books" Croydon Advertiser
