Wintersmith is another jewel in the wonderfully absurd crown that is the Discworld. Tiffany Aching grows in knowledge and power as she steps into a dance with winter and begins a, shall we call it… flirtation. As Tiffany grows older in these books, so the content becomes richer and a little more adult. While The Wee Free Men and A Hat Full of Sky can quite happily caper into the thoughts of a nine year old, I feel the third novel is more suitable for slightly older children. Do you need to have read the first two Tiffany Aching books, yes you do actually, to enjoy the sheer magic of Terry Pratchett's writing as he takes the world we live in, and while making fun of humanity, also allows us to see the sheer wonder. Wintersmith is a gorgeous, wickedly funny, dancing delight of a novel and as it joins the first two Tiffany Aching Novels, it snugly fits right in. ~ Liz Robinson
The Tiffany Aching Discworld books are in order:
Witches are odd. That much is clear to Tiffany. But she likes them...In an odd sort of way. Just as she likes Roland...In a friend sort of way (which most certainly isn't odd). But Tiffany hasn't really got time to think about Roland, because she has accidentally danced with Winter himself - the Wintersmith. And now the Wintersmith has a bit of a crush on Tiffany. According to her friend Daft Wullie, if Tiffany kisses the Wintersmith (an awful thought), her nose turns blue and fall off. According to the witches, if she doesn't shake off her admirer, there will never be another springtime...
