This book continues the story of Tiffany Aching from 'The Wee Free Men' who has, in the previous book, realized that she was a witch (which in the vein of this book, a 'knower'), and in this story goes off to apprentice with a senior witch. Once again, it's more of a 'quaint' Enid Blyton sort of magic -- not the dark insidious overtones of Harry Potter. On a subtler level, it is a story of self-discovery and of finding balance: within oneself, and with all that is seen and unseen in the world. Some of the metaphors and allusions, especially towards the end of the book, do make a you think. A good read! ( )

The Discworld Children's series is a hoot. I haven't enjoyed reading a series this much in a long time. Tiffany Aching is a young witch-in-training and is followed and protected by Nac Mac Feegles (otherwise known as "Wee Free Men"). For fantasy fiction, the world Pratchett has constructed is seamless and perfect. The humans are wonderful but the Nac Mac Feegles (with their wonderful names--"Rob Anybody", for example)are so funny and yet so perfectly set in their world. I'll be sad when this series is over.

The second in the "Tiffany Aching" series. I read and really enjoyed "The Wee Free Men". But I have to be honest: this one is not as good. Maybe because there's not as much wee free men. No Granny Aching. Maybe because it suffers from "sequel syndrome" where, since her first goal was already accomplished, now the story struggles with achievements. It's about Tiffany living with the witches, and now she has to go to "witch school". She meets colorful characters, but suffers from annoyances and problems. Rather than something to achieve, to reach for. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060586621, Mass Market Paperback)

Something is coming after Tiffany ...

Tiffany Aching is ready to begin her apprenticeship in magic. She expects spells and magic -- not chores and ill-tempered nanny goats! Surely there must be more to witchcraft than this!

What Tiffany doesn't know is that an insidious, disembodied creature is pursuing her. This time, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the fierce, six-inch-high Wee Free Men can protect her. In the end, it will take all of Tiffany's inner strength to save herself ... if it can be done at all.

A Story of Discworld
