It stars a creative, capable heroine and is Looking for a guy named wee no way about her love of boys, which is always refreshing still, still this is refreshing. And it's funny.
I mean, funny-ish. Funny is so inc This was my first Terry Pratchett book. Names is so incredibly hard to do in books.
Or maybe it is just hard to make a book that I will think is Ewe funnyinstead of just clearly trying to be funny. I almost never laugh when I read. Other reviews of this book mention hearty belly-aching guffaws, streaming tears, Naughty ladies wants sex tonight Andalusia uncontrollably flung into the air in spastic fits of mirthful glee.
Whereas I would encounter one of Pratchett's many, many puns or subtle off-color jokes I would quote one but the book is already back at the library, but they are well-placed and will surely go right over a kid's headand my brain would go, "Hey, that is clever.
That's funny. Ha ha. I don't know what is wrong with me! I want to be one of those people who giggle-snorts while reading on the subway. I do laugh when I read funny blog posts or Goodreads reviews so I don't know what is going on. The last time I remember laughing really hard at a book, it was one small part of The Kid: Terry Pratchett deserves a better reader than me because this is a funny book.

For generations without counting, the Achings also spelled Aikens, Archens, or Akins have tended sheep in the Discworld backwater known as the Chalk.
Nothing interesting has Ladies seeking real sex Estcourt Station Maine in the Chalk for all of recorded history. But that's about to change. A parasitic fae world, made of selfish magic and dream fragments, is connecting to the Chalk. Monsters not seen in centuries are d Tiffany Aching, aged nine, is the only member of her large family with a jot of curiosity about the outside world.
Monsters not seen in centuries are dropping up in fields and rivers. Tiffany is the only human aware of them, and thus the only defense against them. So when Tiffany's perpetually sticky, candy-obsessed toddler brother, Wentworth, is left unattended for a few minutes and abducted by the cruel and selfish Faerie Queen pronounced "Quin" by most of our cast only Tiffany can save him.
She finds allies in the Nac Mac Feegle - a cheerfully violent tribe of six-inch-high, blue-skinned brigands with thick Scottish burrs - and a talking toad view spoiler [who was once a human lawyer. Sam Gamgee and Rapunzel approve. Content Advisory Violence: The Feegles will attack anything, including but not limited to faerie queens, sharks, sheep, giant squid, whiny twelve-year-old boys, housecats, and each other. This is always played for laughs.
There is no actual death or gore shown. There's an unsettling flashback of the Chalk people burning down the Adult chat lines down Saint Denis Sur Richelieu of an elderly suspected witch and killing her cat.
Tiffany's older sisters enjoy springtime on the farm because they get to watch the young men working with their shirts off.
Tiffany is baffled. She's equally baffled by her uncle's fondness for a chewing tobacco logo that features a nude female figure if you look at it from a certain angle. When Tiffany is declared temporary kelda matriarch of the local Feegles, she fears that she'll have to marry their chief, Rob Anybody yes, that's his real nameas dictated by tradition.
He's just as scared as she is, due to the considerable difference in age and size. They figure a way out of it, don't worry! The Feegles' favorite word is "crivens! Substance Abuse: The Wee Free Men are always hammered and proud of it. Tiffany bribes them with something called Special Sheep Linament, which is said to put hair on one 's chest. All the adults in Tiffany's family chew tobacco. Nightmare Fuel: In Faerie live blobby, faceless creatures called dromes, who absorb human thoughts and build dreams from them.
Usually the human gets trapped in the dream and Looking for a guy named wee, while the drome drains the life from them. The Quin is a shapeshifter with no settled form. Pratchett's suspicion of religion is not manifest in this book but occasionally crops up later in the series.
While the word "witch" is frequently used, the witches in this universe have little in common with real-world witches, or even Harry Potter witches. The trappings we associate with witches - incantations, potions, summoning of spirits - are almost nonexistent here. This is just a group of women who do the right thing because somebody has to. Their main goal is keeping the peace and protecting the powerless, and unlike many fictional witches, they don't hate men. In the case of Nanny Ogg, they really, really Conclusion The Wee Free Men was my introduction to Pratchett and Discworld, but despite being his fortieth book set Looking for a guy named wee it was easy to jump in.
But these similarities are in the bones of the story, not displayed on its facade. The imagery is often familiar, but the tale itself has a unique viewpoint and message. For instance, if you put all the villains of the aforementioned stories in a police lineup, the Quin would stand out.
She's not a bellowing dullard like the Queen of Hearts, nor is she consumed with hubris and power-lust like Jadis.
She's much more personal than Adult dating XXX Milf in New park L'Engle's mutant disembodied brain, not King's demon clown and much smarter than Smaug, who has the mind of a Looking for a guy named wee after all. As for Jareth, he's an antihero, not a villain, and has a human emotional life Looking for a guy named wee the capabilities of someone like the Quin.
If anything she's a more active Snow Queen, a shallow malignant force who feeds on discouragement and falsehood. Tiffany wins by being grounded in her home soil. Unlike the majority of the protagonists on the influence list, she does not come from money. She's grown up among life and death and beauty and decay as only a farm kid can.
She wants to travel and learn, but she's no Belle looking down her nose at the other villagers either.
Tiffany is probably better adjusted than most adults. And those crazy Feegles. My imagination would be a sad place without wed brainless braveryhuge hearts, eternal loyalty, and love of kebabs. I am happy to report nameed there are four more books about Tiffany and Co.

The quality of the writing is much improved compared to some of the early books in the series, the location is new The Chalk is an isolated corner of the flat world, concerned almost exclusively with sheep farming and the lead character, Tiffany Aching makes her Women seeking sex tonight Isleton here.
I believe the pictsies they're NOt the same thing as pixies also show up here for the first time, although they may have had a walk-in guest appearance in some earlier story. The book is about witches, friends in need, family, dreams. It is also about self-awareness, self-determination and courage, regardless of the size or age of the protagonist. Last but not least, because we're talking about Terry Pratchett here, it is also about the humorous subversion of popular myths and concepts like the cute, sparkly and benevolent fairies and about thinking outside the box.
I should Looking for a guy named wee cut the Wife want hot sex Provincetown and be more specific: Young sheepfarmer daughter Tiffany comes from a Looking for a guy named wee old family in the Chalk - a place that seemes almost frozen in time, unchanging in its traditions and occupations since times immemorial.
She helps around the farm, reads dictionaries from start to finish nobody told her she's not supposed toLooking for a guy named wee her sticky 'I-Want-Candy' younger brother Wentworth, and likes to tickle trout in the nearby stream in her leisure time.

They are the Nac Mac Feegles. Also known as pictsies. They call themselves the Wee Free Men. There were hundreds. They rose up from behind buckets. They lowered themselves on string from the ceiling beams. They sidled sheepishly from behind the cheese racks. They crept from under the sink. They came out of places where you'd think a man with hair like an orange nova couldn't possibly hide.
They were all about six inches tall and mostly colored blue, although it was hard to know if that was the actual color of their skins or just the dye from their tattoos, which covered every inch that wasn't covered with red hair. They wore short kilts, and some wore other bits of Hot sexy horny Port Orange Florida too, like skinny vests.
A few of them wore rabbit or rat skulls on their heads, as a sort of helmet. And every single one of them carried, slung Looking for a guy named wee his back, a sword nearly as big as he was. They like stealing, drinking and fighting and use their heads only as battering rams on their adversaries.

We wilna be fooled again! My favorite of the bunch is Daft Wullie who never thinks before he opens his mouth and whose candor about the illegal activities of the pictsies provided many laughs along the journey.
In contrast to Daft Wullie, Tiffany has some abilities that make her a very special young girl. She thinks carefully before comitting Looking for a guy named wee to speak, she cares about her flock and her people, she's good with her hands. Most of all she is inquisitive - the best kind of kids, one of those that are forever asking questions and are curious about the surrounding world. Apparently these are all the necessary qualifications to become a witch, only nobody can tell her where to apply to go to witch school.
All she can do is stare hard: Tiffany's Second Thoughts said: Hang on, was that a First Thought? And Tiffany thought: I'm thinking about how I think about what I'm thinking. Her Second Thoughts said: Let's all calm down, please, because this is quite a small head.

The whole conversation between Tiffany and Miss Tick is one of the highlights of the novel, as is the concept of the itinerant teachers. It doesn't sound like a bad career choice, opening young minds from impoverished locations to the wonders of the larger world. I would Looking for a guy named wee them 'hedge-teachers' in honor of one of Geroge R R Martin novellas: They went from village to village delivering short lessons on many subjects.
They kept apart from the other travelers and were quite mysterious in their ragged robes and strange square hats. They used long words, like 'corrugated iron'. They lived rough lives, surviving on what food they could earn from giving lessons to anyone who would listen.
When no one would listen, they lived on baked hedgehog. They went to sleep under Looking for a guy named wee stars, which the math teachers would count, the astronomy teachers would measure, and the literature teachers would name.
The geography teachers got lost in the woods and fell into bear traps. Most of the novel is spent though in the realm of the Fairy Queen, a bleak, desolate and dangerous snowy landscape that is a far cry from the sunny, pastel coloured, cutesy standard depiction Ye could say it's the bit the tourists dinna see.
Predatory dreamweavers called 'dromes' wait in the shadows to trap unwary visitors in nightmares. The Queen is the most dangerous of all the creatures in the realm, yet Tiffany must Naughty girls on Prairie City her directly if she wants to rescue her brother.
The epic battle of wills between adultly inclined Tiffany and childish, arrogant, fickle Queen is spectacular and full of invention, managing to include both endearing flashbacks of Tiffany's role model Granny Aching Them as can do has to do for them as can't. She may be a little young here, but I never felt she was out of Looking for a guy named wee or too smart for her years in the way she looks at the world and in the way she solves her problems on her own, without appealing for help from adults: I am careful and logical and I look up things things I don't understand!

Anyway, the real problem with this course of action was of course, WHERE to start, given as how Pratchett has over 40 novels in the Discworld series alone.
I had on good authority that even though The Wee Free Men is Discworld book 30, it was a good place to begin as part of a four-book YA mini-series featuring 9-year-old Tiffany Aching. Tiffany is — as of this book — the current recipient of the newly-minted The Book Smugglers Award for Best Witch-To-Be on account of her perspicacity, courage, love for words, pride on her cheese-making skills as well as the ability to stand impervious and mostly unaffected by condescending wew, evil Queens, talking frogs and diminutive and outrageous, thievery blue men in kilts otherwise known as Nac Mac Feegle or Pictsies [not to be confused with Pixies, if you please] or the Wee Free Men.

Nac Mac Feegles possess a eusocial culture similar to bees, termites and other social insects. The clan is made up of hundreds of brothers, and one mother, called a keldawho plays the role of the "queen".
When a Clan's kelda dies, another is imported from a different clan. The new kelda chooses her husband, known as the Big Man, from among her adopted Clan when she arrives, and soon begins the lifelong task of begetting the next generation, often up to twenty tiny baby Feegles at a time. Depending on how long the kelda has been kelda, the majority of the tribe will either be her brothers-in-law i.

Male Feegles are in dread of losing their kelda because there will be no one 'tae take care o' us'. To help her with this, she is given, before leaving her birth clan, a bottle of water from her mother's leather cauldron - which, of course, contains some of the water from her mother's cauldron, and so on.
Theoretically and on the Discworld theories of this nature tend to work, even if they aren't actually right, owing to narrative causalitythe bottle contains water from the cauldrons of Nac Mac Feegle keldas since before history. By mixing a little of Looking for a guy named wee water into her own cauldron, and drinking the result, the kelda can connect with the memories of those who have gone before her - and, more mysteriously, with those who are yet to come.
The males of the clan don't question this, accepting that keldaring is full of secrets hiddlins they aren't expected to understand. They are warriors, hunters, and foragers; Nac Mac Feegle foraging consists of taking anything that isn't nailed down if it is Hot lady seeking casual sex Breckland down, they will take the nails as wellup to and including quite large cows if enough foragers can be gathered to do the lifting given their strength, najed for each hoof.
