We thought it was essential to have at least one Terry Pratchett novel in our launch of our teenage and young adult category ‘NewGen’. This one is Pratchett at his side-splitting best – it’s funny, it’s unputdownable and no one else writes quite like and has the imagination of this great man. There’s a risk that they’ll never be spring again when the spirit of winter falls in love with Tiffany Aching, a young witch who had acted out of place. With help from friends, Tiffany must sort everything out if she wants to make sure that flowers will bloom again. A beautiful fantasy from a prize-winning storyteller.

If you like Terry Pratchett you might also like to read books by Jasper Fforde, Douglas Adams and Tom Holt.

He gives her roses and icebergs, says it with avalanches and showers her with snowflakes - and suddenly winter is all around her. Tiffany must put the mess right - or there will never be another springtime.

About the Author

Terry Pratchett

Sir Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998 and in 2009 was knighted for his services to literature. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal. In December 2007 he announced that he had been diagnosed with Posterior Cortical Atrophy, a rare variant of Alzheimer's disease. He died in March 2015.
