A riotous, wise, and gripping junior Discworld novel from the Carnegie Medal-winning author and acknowledged master of comic fantasy.Nine-year-old Tiffany Aching thinks her Granny Aching - a wise shepherd - might have been a witch, but now Granny Aching is dead and it's up to Tiffany to work it all out when strange things begin happening: a fairy-tale monster in the stream, a headless horseman and, strangest of all, the tiny blue men in kilts, the Wee Free Men, who have come looking for the new 'hag'.

Eines meiner Lieblingsbücher von der Scheibenwelt, jetzt vorgelesen weil das Kind im richtigen Alter dazu ist und etwas "Lustiges und Ernstes" wollte. Eignet sich hervorragend zum kapitelweise Vorlesen und hat die richtige Mischung aus Ernsthaftigkeit, ein bisschen Grusel, Witz und Spannung. Die Übersetzung ist gelungen, wobei ich finde, dass man den Nac Mac Feegle einfach ihren Namen hätte lassen können. Als Einstieg in die Scheibenwelt jedenfalls sehr gut geeignet.

Why are we humans like that? Why can't we ever be satisfied with what we have? I mean, pretty soon I'll be taking my digital watch, grapefruit spoon set, Kwan Yin statue, Kitchenaid, some paintings, an extension ladder to reach coconuts, a few close friends, their favorite things and people, and before you know it the island will just be too crowded. …
