A Hat Full of Sky is the 2nd book in the Tiffany Aching subseries of Discworld. I really enjoyed this one, maybe slightly more than I enjoyed the first Tiffany Aching book. It had an equally good story, and I thought it was a bit funnier.

In this book, Tiffany is now eleven and she leaves her home on the chalk for the first time so she can learn how to be a proper witch. She travels to the mountains where she’ll serve as an apprentice for a witch named Miss Level, who is a bit unusual. Meanwhile, a power-hungry entity has sensed Tiffany’s power and is about to catch up with her.

The Nac Mac Feegles had some particularly funny moments in this book, and I also liked Miss Level. Tiffany is still a great and likeable character who is easy to root for. There were also some good messages in the story about being nice to people you don’t really want to be nice to, helping people you don’t really want to help, and doing the things that need to be done even if you really don’t want to do them.

2nd book about Tiffany Aching- Nac Mac Feegles- Hiver ( )
  Quilby | Jan 18, 2017 |
Tiffany Aching continues her adventures as she must leave her beloved chalk uplands and begin her apprenticeship with a more experienced witch. Of course, wild adventures ensue including plenty of humorous activities involving the wee blue free men. Dark forces of evil must be contended with and Tiffany must learn to milk her mentor's goat. The story is engaging, but Pratchett, as usual, delves into the philosophical realm as well in a way that enriches rather than dampening the story. Suitable for intermediate and young adult readers but equally satisfying for adults. Every Pratchett novel I read becomes my new "favorite" and this is no exception. ( )

Tiffany Aching is an apprentice witch! And she's not good at the magic. At least, not the simple magic they are trying to teach her. She can do a weird thing where she steps out of her body. And she can make cheese. Tiffany Aching is good at cheese. But there's a hiver on the loose, possessing people, and Tiffany is on its radar. The feegles have left the Chalk to come protect Tiffany, and she has the experienced witches and new apprentice friends, but this is going to be a hard task.

Tiffany's grownup attitudes are starting to fit her age better. Or maybe I just got over the fact that she is too young to talk like Terry Pratchett. She's overly cocky, like any 10 year old. I like that Tiffany, even though everyone knows she's talented, still has are hard time with witchcraft. She has to figure out how to make her own way. Being the Chalk witch is a slightly different job from being a mountain witch. And Tiffany needs all of her cleverness to figure it out. Well, and the feegles help. The feegles are always great. And I can't wait til Wintersmith when I can have Stephen Briggs narrating again. ( )

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.
