Tiffany Aching, the boldest heroine ever to swing a frying pan against the forces of evil, is beginning her apprenticeship in magic. She expects to work hard, learn spells, and become a witch. She doesn't expect to find herself doing chores, caring for the careless, and trying to outthink an ill-tempered nanny goat. There must be more to witchcraft than this!But as Tiffany pursues her calling, an insidious, disembodied creature pursues Tiffany. When it strikes, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the six-inch-high Wee Free Men (the greatest thieves in the world) can save her.Outrageous comedy blends with pulse-racing suspense in this compelling sequel to The Wee Free Men.More
Why we think it's Essential: Interpreting an imagination as outrageous (and beloved) as Terry Pratchett's poses interesting challenges: What exactly does a Feegle sound like? Luckily, narrator Stephen Briggs is up to the task, and gives voice to witch-in-training Tiffany Aching and the wildly magical characters of Pratchett's third young adult novel with delight, panache, and a bit of playful abandon. Listeners have called Brigg's rendition of Rob Anybody his "crowning achievement". Ed Walloga
"Compelling and hilarious. Stephen Briggs's superb narration brings to life the trials, setbacks, and triumphs of Tiffany, as well as Pratchett's trademark humor. Briggs's performance is finely tuned and gives clear nuance to the characters." (AudioFile)
