Publisher Comments:

At 9, Tiffany Aching defeated the cruel Queen of Fairyland.

At 11, she battled an ancient body-stealing evil.

At 13, Tiffany faces a new challenge: a boy. And boys can be a bit of a problem when you're thirteen...

But the Wintersmith isn't exactly a boy. He is Winter itself — snow, gales, icicles — all of it. When he has a crush on Tiffany, he may make her roses out of ice, but his nature is blizzards and avalanches. And he wants Tiffany to stay in his gleaming, frozen world. Forever.

Tiffany will need all her cunning to make it to Spring. She'll also need her friends, from junior witches to the legendary Granny Weatherwax. They —

Crivens! Tiffany will need the Wee Free Men, too! She'll have the help of the bravest, toughest, smelliest pictsies ever to be banished from Fairyland — whether she wants it or not.

It's going to be a cold, cold season, because if Tiffany doesn't survive until Spring —

— Spring won't come.

Review:

"[Y]et another rollicking, clever, and quite charming adventure is brought to readers, who will find themselves delighted again — or for the first time — by Pratchett's exuberant storytelling." Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"Pratchett once again delivers a sidesplittingly funny adventure that overlays a deeply thoughtful inquiry into the nature of narrative and identity....This one is verra weel done indeed." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[O]verall it is great fun — vintage Pratchett, in fact. Tiffany Aching fans will love the book, and newcomers to Pratchett will love it as well. In short, this book is not to be missed." VOYA

Review:

"Funny, wise, and suspenseful, this is yet another wonderful fantasy from the popular author of The Wee Free Men and A Hat Full of Sky...as well as many other delightful novels." KLIATT

Synopsis:

Because if Tiffany doesn't make it to Spring—

—Spring won't come.
