Publisher Comments:

Armed only with a frying pan and her common sense, Tiffany Aching, a young witch-to-be, is all that stands between the monsters of Fairyland and the warm, green Chalk country that is her home. Forced into Fairyland to seek her kidnapped brother, Tiffany allies herself with the Chalk's local Nac Mac Feegle — aka the Wee Free Men — a clan of sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men who are as fierce as they are funny. Together, they battle though an eerie and ever-shifting landscape, fighting brutal flying fairies, dream-spinning dromes, and grimhounds — black dogs with eyes of fire and teeth of razors — before ultimately confronting the Queen of the Elves, absolute ruler of a world in which reality intertwines with nightmare. And in the final showdown, Tiffany must face her cruel power alone ...

This audio book made a long car trip with one teenaged boy, 2 tween girls and 2 adults go by very quickly. Terry Pratchett is a genius with words and Stephen Briggs is "better than Jim Dale" (quoting my son). The exploits of the Nac MacFeegle will have you laughing out loud and saying "Ach, Crivens" and "Wailey, wailey, wailey" when it's over.

I laughed 'til I cried. My husband and I both really loved this audio book. Stephen Briggs is brilliant as a reader. And Terry Pratchett can't be beat. All we could say was "Wailie, wailie, wailie" when it ended. Try it. It will make your day.
