Wintersmith (Discworld Novel 35) by Terry Pratchett

SAYING IT WITH FROZEN ROSES AND ICEBERGS . . . Tiffany Aching leaps into a dance - and suddenly the spirit of winter is in love with her. He's showering her with snowflakes and offering her a crown of ice - which is creepy, but also just a little bit . . . cool. Now she's dancing to his tune. She can't change the steps. But unless Tiffany can work out how to deal with the Wintersmith, there will never be another springtime . . . FROM MASTER STORYTELLER TERRY PRATCHETT


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 *
