"The Wee Free Men", by Terry Pratchett Hardback Copy. (Auction ID: 193941, End Time : Aug. 20, 2010 21:25:52) - Okbidnow Auction Site
The Wee Free Men is Terry's second children's novel set on the Discworld. The story is about Tiffany Aching, a nine year old who lives and works with her family on a sheep farm located in a place know locally as 'The Chalk'.
Once a lonely old lady with no teeth was wrongly accused of being a witch and of cooking and eating the Baron's son.
The old lady was turned out of her house and left to die in the winter. Tiffany knew the old lady was innocent because she only had a small oven (so couldn't possibly cook a person in it) and unexpectedly decided to become a witch to prevent this sort of thing happening again.
"A Hat Full of Sky" is the sequel to "The Wee Free Men"
A Hat Full of Sky continues the adventures of eleven-year-old Tiffany as she endeavors to become a proper witch.
She's 'done' magic before, quite spectacularly and to great effect, but now she must be apprenticed to an established practitioner of the craft, the amazing Miss Level, in order to learn exactly how she did it.
Unfortunately for her, there's a crazed and malevolent ancient spirit buzzing about, called a Hiver, who is looking for a convenient host to consume. Hiver's are attracted to greatness, and Tiffany hides an enormous talent that seems ripe for domination.
Still grateful for Miss Aching's past help, a crack team of several Wee Free Men, nature's funkiest, drunkest and bluest fairy folk, take it upon themselves to help Tiffany out. Hiver's, however, are unbeatable and it's a definite "sooey-side mission" to save the big wee hag from harm.
