In this paperback edition, the illustrations are by Laura Ellen Anderson, while the 2003 version is by Paul Kidby.
After watching "Terry Pratchett: Back in Black" (2017) film about the author, I decided I wanted to read his work.
I had never read this particular kind of literature and shame on me!
Terry Pratchett vocabulary is amazing, he plays with words, makes them musical.
Reading out loud this book was so easy and fun. Sometimes I had to stop 'cause I kept laughing.
The dialect of the Nac Mac Feegle is hilarious and you'll find yourself mimicking their way of cursing and threatening.
"Crivens! I kicked meself in ma ain heid!".
"We've got a cheap lawyer an' we're not afraid to use him!"
If you have children, read this story with them. Play with them, and fight the Queen with them.
I was searching a book with a strong girl with no frills that could be an example for our lil'woman and I'm so happy I discovered Tiffany Aching.
Tiffany has wit, resilience, humor, and likes books. She loves her grandma and that's an important bond that will help her during the entire book.
The Wee Free Men is followed by a second book "A hat full of Sky"(2004), a third "Wintersmith" (2006), a fourth "I Shall Wear Midnight" (2010) and a 5th and final book "The Shepherd's Crown".
Plenty to read and enjoy.
On a side note: The Jim Henson Company (the muppets, sesame streets, furchester hotel) has confirmed that there's a film in development. Be prepared!
It had all the good elements of a kids story. A flawed but enjoyable to read main character, side characters who are moraly grey and funny and a story to get invested in.
I definetly recommend you add this to your child's bookshelf.
This is my hands down favourite book on the whole planet. Nothing else even comes close. I have read my old hardback copy at least 20 times and it never gets old. This is the book that got me into reading and it will always be a timeless classic to me. Pratchett is a genius - if you want your kids to read just try it. It taught me innumerable life lessons as well! Who knew?
Anyway. I'm done gushing.
It's a fantastic book. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Ach, see you, pussycat, scunner that y'are!
