“It’s witty and wise, but it leaves its young readers enough room for a newly formed opinion or two as they think about its themes of love, loss, loyalty, courage, religion and nationhood.”
“An enchanting novel . . . Terry Pratchett is one of the most interesting and critically under-rated novelists we have.”
— The Times
“Pratchett is, like Mark Twain or Jonathan Swift, not just a great writer but also an original thinker.”
