The Wee Free Men: (Discworld Novel 30) (Discworld Novels)

The Wee Free Men (Discworld, #30) - Terry Pratchett This is another Discworld YA novel and it's fair to say I only read it because it was next on the list and I wanted to have read them all. Which is not to say it's bad but it's aimed at a younger audience and probably a female one. The protagonist is Tiffany Aching, a 9-year-old girl from The Chalk which is a part of the Disc where there are lots of sheep and not much else. A collision with another world is coming, a world where dreams and reality intermingle, and just because what you see and feel may not be real doesn't mean the danger isn't. Anyway someone needs to do something and Tiffany decides that someone is going to be her. Armed with only a frying pan and her wits... oh and some little blue friends.I liked Tiffany and I especially liked her grandmother who was a sort of more taciturn, more sheep-obsessed version of Granny Weatherwax. I was less keen on the whole dreamworld aspect and the Nac Mac Feegle (the titular Wee Free Men) make me smile a little but they're not really that funny for me. Nonetheless plenty to enjoy.
