Almost as good as it's predecessor, The Wee Free Men, it is still a fun story to read aloud to young children, as I did with my daughters.

Pratchett has a ways with words that translate highly abstract concepts into fairy tale simplicity. Tiffany, the central character, again encounters a train of philosophical quandaries, presented in terms most children should comprehend, and maybe even some grown-ups.

Without giving away too much, know that this story contains colonies of small blue men with very few women whose comparison with Smurfs ends there, powerful pointy-hatted witches who prefer to cast spells as infrequently as possible, and a dozen lesser examples of preconceptions torn asunder.
