Publisher Comments:

When Tiffany Aching sets out to become a witch, she faces ominous foes and gains unexpected allies. As she confronts the Queen of Fairies and battles an ancient, bodiless evil, she is aided (and most ably abetted) by the six-inch-high, fightin', stealin', drinkin' Wee Free Men!

Laugh-out-loud humor and breathtaking action combine in the books that launched the unforgettable adventures of a determined young witch and her tiny but fierce blue friends.

Synopsis:

Paperback bind-up of the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling THE WEE FREE MEN and A HAT FULL OF SKY, the first two Tiffany Aching Adventures by international superstar Terry Pratchett.

Synopsis:

This omnibus edition includes the "New York Times"-bestselling "The Wee Free Men" and "A Hat Full of Sky."

Terry Pratchett writes with wit and a sprinkling of philosophy. This book is written like Douglas Adams or Piers Anthony would. The Wee Free Men believe they have died and are in heaven: they get to fight, swear and steal to their hearts content. It's like a hockey game 24/7 for them. Don't worry though 'cause they are six inches tall with red hair and skin blue from all their tattoos. Remember the pictsies in the movie Willow? Yep, that kind of attitude but with high visibility due to their vibrancy. They come to a nine year old girl's aid as they've identified her as a "big wee hag" (young human witch) before she does. Tiffany deals with things with first thoughts and second sight, which makes her wise beyond her years and a bonafide witch.

I don't know what I enjoyed more, the antics of the Wee Free Men or the philosophical nuggets that Terry sprinkles in without you suspecting it was anything more that entertainment. Irresistible indeed!

An enchanting novel for both adults and children, this is a must for any library. When Tiffany's sticky younger brother disappears its up to her to save him as no one else can, she must fill her grandmother's boots as the recently deceased matriarch of this sleepy farming village. Can Tiffany survive a trip to fairy land with only her trusty iron skillet and a band of little blue men who scuffle with everything and everyone? Has a life of making cheese and tickling carp prepared her for this adventure? An awesome book!
