We thought it was essential to have at least one Terry Pratchett novel in our launch of our teenage and young adult category â€˜NewGenâ. This one is Pratchett at his side-splitting best â€“ itâs funny, itâs unputdownable and no one else writes quite like and has the imagination of this great man. Thereâs a risk that theyâll 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.
Wintersmith by Terry PratchettWhen Tiffany Aching - young witch - steps into a dance she shouldn't, the spirit of winter falls in love with her. 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.
