Miss Perspicacia Tick sat in what little shelter a raggedy hedge could give her and explored the universe. She didn’t notice the rain. Witches dried out quickly.
When Tiffany’s baby brother is taken by the Queen of the fairies she prepares a rescue armed with a skillet and the company of the Nac Mac Feegle, a bellicose race of blue fairies who have a lust for life and strong drink. Terry Pratchett offers up a novel loaded with humour, social commentary, and a strong (and interesting) female protagonist who turns out to be a witch. One in a solid series (five books so far) that sees Tiffany mature and have other harrowing, hilarious encounters with the denizens of Disc World.
