The second in a series of Discworld novels starring the young witch Tiffany Aching.

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.

9/2012 Love this book in any form, but this audio may be edging into first place. The narration is just splendid.


9/2011 I adore this book. Tiffany's a delightful heroine, but the real star here is Granny Weatherwax. Pratchett's wise women are crochety, quirky and entirely wonderful as a rule, but Esme Weatherwax transcends wonderfulness and enters into epic territory.



3/2009 Wonderful narration! If you like the book, you'll love the audio.more
Although I love reading Pratchett's books, I had even more fun listening to the audiobook. The reader, Stephen Briggs, does all the right accents. Highly recommended to listen to even if you've read the book.more
I love the Tiffany Aching series. One of the things that stuck with me hard out of this book was a bit where Tiffany's witching teacher tells her, (paraphrasing a bit) you can't refuse to help people just because they're stupid and annoying and smell a bit and never say thank you, that's not how it works! Love that.more
I enjoyed the book, it was entertaining and cute. However I didn't like it as much as 'The Wee Free Men'. Somehow this seemed to me almost the same basic story, so there were little suprises in it for me. The Nac Mac Feegles were horribly nasty and funny at the same time. And very loyel to their hag. Tiffany got into trouble, but fought her way out of it with help of a senior Witch and in the end barely understand how she did it. It rang a few too many bells, sometimes. But still very enjoyable to read.more

Near the end, one of the most moving pieces ever written by Terry Pratchett. Chapeau.more
A Hat Full of Sky is entertaining and fun read about a young witch in training in the classic fairy style. In the first Tiffany Aching book she rescues her little brother from the Fairy Queen and becomes the kelda of the wee free men. The macfeagle are not exactly like brownies in that if you leave them milk they won't help you do your chores. If you leave them whiskey they'll try to help but it won't be the sort of help you'd want. She realises she's a witch despite all prior claims by witches that the Chalk lands don't breed good witches on account they are too soft. This book is about her continuing education as a witch.Tiffany is sent to train with Miss Level who is not a twin but one person with two bodies. Miss Level's idea of witchcraft is helping the poor and elderly in her community which is a thankless task for a child unless your Pollyanna. Tiffany's own frustrations at being treated like a child come out when she's possessed by a Hiver. She reminded me a bit of Harry Potter in Order of the Phoenix since even after they've accomplished a huge feat they are still excluded from the adults.The hiver has Tiffany's memories and somewhat of her personality except for the moral part that would've prevented her from taking advantage of others or saying the rudest things we might think about a trying person. I loved the new stories we heard about her beloved Granny Aching. She was my favourite character in the Wee Free Men despite that she was dead.more
