Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pratchett sets this drama in a frozen landscape worthy of Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen or the White Witch of Narnia…With Wintersmith, he gets this bewitching series brilliantly back on track.” Washington Post
“Pratchett’s dry humor and sense of the absurd is wonderful.” Philadelphia Inquirer
“Yet another rollicking, clever, and quite charming adventure is brought to readers, who will find themselves delighted again—or for the first time—by Pratchett’s exuberant storytelling.” Booklist  (starred review)
“Replete with dry and intelligent humor, this latest in the series is sure to delight.” School Library Journal
“Great fun—vintage Pratchett, in fact…This book is not to be missed.” VOYA
“Pratchett once again delivers a sidesplittingly funny adventure that overlays a deeply thoughtful inquiry into the nature of narrative and identity: how the stories we tell shape our understanding of ourselves and of the world we inhabit…This one is verra weel done indeed.” Kirkus Reviews
