Reviews

"With its wry wit and acerbic collision of the mystical with the mundane, the latest book in Pratchett's internationally popular Discworld, is good solid storytelling done in a style that reads like Celtic mythology fused with the girl power of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" with dialogue by Robert Burns."--New York Times Book Review
"Exuberant and irresistible. Pratchett's tale recalls a whole variety of texts in which underestimated heroines confront the forces of darkness--Meg Murry of A Wrinkle in Time, Coraline of Neil Gaiman's recent novel, Lyra Belacqua of The Golden Compass, Miss Bianca of The Rescuers, even Buffy the Vampire Slayer."--Washington Post
"A smart retelling [that] delves into weighty issues but keeps its sense of dark humor."--USA Today
Wonderful language, genuinely scary explorations, and a young girl whose growing up is believable and exciting."--Chicago Tribune
"Perfect for anyone who enjoys The Princess Bride and the works of Douglas Adams. A wonderfully funny fantasy for all ages."--KLIATT (starred review)
"An enthralling and rewarding read."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Set in a chillingly unrecognizable 'fairyland, ' this ingenious melange of fantasy, action, humor, and sly bits of social commentary contains complex underlying themes on the nature of love, reality, and dreams. The Carnegie Medal-winner's fans will not be disappointed."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
A glorious read."--School Library Journal (starred review)
