Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A magical vacuum cleaner, a time-traveling television, airships, feuds, wars, scandals, and gnomes are but a few of the magical conundrums and characters in this collection. Each story is well-developed, engaging, and complex. Laced with the humor only Pratchett can deliver, this volume of tales is a great way to remember the late author’s writing style.” School Library Journal
“A charmer…A guaranteed pleasure to read.” Booklist
