This for Mäeva @readinginhongkong #amagicalbookchallenge “A Wise Witch” prompt. I had never read Terry Pratchett before and when he passed away, I thought I was way passed due to read his work. A few friends made some suggestions on where to start and The Wee Free Men seemed right up my alley. I’m still reading it, but the humor and characterization are so well done. Mr. Pratchett seems to like taking the genre’s conventions and make fun of them, and yet still tell a lively story. The young witch in this story Tiffany Aching is smart and tenacious. She misses her grandmother Granny Aching and realizes she was a great witch and that she’s expected to take her place. She’s determined to protect the Chalk and makes friends with the Wee Free Men. I’m really enjoying this and have a soft spot for Tiffany now.
