Gr. 6-10. Incipient witch Tiffany Aching, who confronted danger in The Wee Free Men (2003), faces even greater peril in this equally quirky sequel. She is taken on as an apprentice witch by Miss Level, who is one person with two bodies--an oddity to say the least. Also, Tiffany is stalked and taken over by a hiver, an invisible, brainless entity that commands and distorts the mind of its host, which eventually dies. Luckily Tiffany is strong enough to hide a section of her mind within herself, but she is otherwise completely under the control of the hiver. It's the cantankerous Wee Free Men (or the Nac Mac Feegle) to the rescue, with the help of Miss Level and the wisest, most respected witch of all. The chase is part slapstick, part terror, and in the end, Tiffany herself sets things straight. Pratchett maintains the momentum of the first book, and fans will relish the further adventures of the "big wee hag," as Tiffany is known to the Feegles. Sally Estes

“The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody as opposed to derivative manipulation of past motifs, who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences.”

“A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages.”
"A great Pratchett strength is the sense that if the jokes were dropped there would still be
a good, engaging fantasy thriller here."
"Fantastically inventive and humorous fantasy adventure. Fans will be sky high."
--The Sunday Times
"Pratchett's ear for dialogue is superb... His deep feeling for landscape, animals, kindness and courage make his adventures deeply satisfying as well as clever."
--Amanda Craig, The Times

This is a very enjoyable read. I have read a few of his books and they seem to focus on very human character traits. Not your traditional fantasy read.Published on April 26 2013 by James Reid
I know it is no news, but Terry Pratchett is a pure genius. With "A hat full of sky" he managed to bring me back to the place I had so joyfully been visiting with "The Wee Free... Read morePublished on Dec 2 2009 by Alambra Dunano
I wanted to like this one. I really did. I adore the adult titles in the series, and the Nac Mac Feegles are hilarious, I wish they would appear in other books. But... Read morePublished on Oct. 22 2008 by WriterGrl
