Wintersmith

(Discworld Novel 35)


Formats & editions


The third book in the Tiffany Aching series - five Discworld novels by master-storyteller Terry Pratchett.

Witches are odd.

That much is clear to Tiffany. But she likes them . . . in an odd sort of way. Just as she likes Roland . . . in a friend sort of way (which most certainly isn’t odd).

But Tiffany hasn’t really got time to think about Roland, because she has accidentally danced with Winter himself – the Wintersmith.

And now the Wintersmith has a bit of a crush on Tiffany.

According to her friend Daft Wullie, if Tiffany kisses the Wintersmith (an awful thought), her nose turns blue and fall off. According to the witches, if she doesn’t shake off her admirer, there will never be another springtime . . .

Praise for Wintersmith

“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

“Lively wit, sly wisdom and compelling narratives”

Leicester Mercury

“Pratchett's usual mix of uproarious comedy and deceptively serious thought”

Southern Daily Echo

“He's probably the funniest writer in English today . . . great themes with huge doses of comedy”

South Wales Evening Post

“Funny and winning as ever”

Nottingham Evening Post

“Crackles with energy and humour”

Leicester Mercury
