Young witch Tiffany Aching leaps into a dance - and suddenly the spirit of winter is in love with her.

Unless she can work out how to deal with the Wintersmith, there will never be another springtime . . .

'Oodles of dry wit, imagination and shrewdly observed characters'

Shortlisted for British Book Awards: WH Smith Children's Book of the Year Award 2007.

"Pratchett's one-liners, the comic dialogue of the Feegles, the satire about teenagers and the credulousness of the ordinary folk make for a characteristically entertaining mix" The Sunday Times "Terry Pratchett kicks the bejaysus out of JK Rowling ... If you haven't read Pratchett before then give yourself a treat and buy this book" In Dublin "Exhuberant energy and humour" The Children's Bookseller "Charming in every sense of the word. Beautifully written and at times highly comic, it is an extraordinary achievement" Books for Keeps "Sure to be as popular with both children and adults as all his other books" Croydon Advertiser
