5.0 out of 5 stars Crivens!, 2 May 2004
This review is from: A Hat Full of Sky: (Discworld Novel 32) (Discworld Novels) (Hardcover)
The third of Terry Pratchett's Discworld stories to be aimed at a younger audience (the other's were The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents, and The Wee Free Men), A Hat Full of Sky proves to be an absolute delight to read. What's even better is that as a 21 year old fan of the Discworld novels I probably got more enjoyment from reading this than a kid would.
All the ingredients are here for a great Discworld story, but in a condensed, simpler form. Following on from The Wee Free Men, this book again stars eleven year old witch-in-training Tiffany Aching and the band of faires that help her, the Nac Mac Feegle. Mind you, these aren't you're ordinary faries. These are like a band of smurf-like Bravehearts, complete with thick scottish accents (which are a delight to read out loud) and a desire to fight everything that moves and a lot of stuff that doesn't.
Tiffany, moving away from the place where she lived, goes to learn from Miss Level, a witch with a very perculiar ability, even for a witch. But, something is moving with her, following her. An evil force intent on taking control of her body. And the Nac Mac Feegle, who fear nothing, are afraid of it. Probably because it hasn't got anything that they can deliver a good kicking to. The story moves along nicely, and is full of great touches. And, as a fan of the series, it was great to see Granny Weatherwax is still going strong, and taking a shining to young Tiffany - who could very possibly become a greater witch than even the legendary Granny Weatherwax.
I would strongly recommend this to any reader, young or old, who understands the value of a good story.
