There's a risk that they'll never be spring again when the spirit of winter falls in love with Tiffany Aching, a young witch who had acted out of place. With help from friends, Tiffany must sort everything out if she wants to make sure that flowers will bloom again. A beautiful fantasy from a prize-winning storyteller.

Synopsis

Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett

When Tiffany Aching - young witch - steps into a dance she shouldn't, the spirit of winter falls in love with her. He gives her roses and icebergs, says it with avalanches and showers her with snowflakes - and suddenly winter is all around her. Tiffany must put the mess right - or there will never be another springtime.

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 * 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 *
