In addition to his phenomenally popular Discworld series for adults, Sir Terry is the multi-award-winning author of many children's books, including the Michael L. Printz Award Honor books Nation and Dodger, and is the recipient of the American Library Association's Margaret A. Edwards Award for his significant and lasting contribution to young adult literature.Sir Terry lives in England.

The perfect starting place for young readers; seasoned Pratchett fans will just revel in his wit, his subversion of tropes and his sense of humanity. . . . Small in scale but large in pleasure.
--Kirkus This story is inventive in its carefully worked-out central conceit, often vey funny, and dotted with some genuinely scary bits, as well as Pratchett's wiry 1971 spot illustrations.
--Publishers Weekly All of the big political ideas of mid-century epic fantasy are here writ literally small and carried along by Pratchett's signature wit and flawless pacing.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Sure to be sought after by Pratchett's fans, young and old, this adventure will also amuse children who have never heard his name.
--Booklist Fantasy with comedic flair is the Pratchett trademark . . . [This] book will entice young readers into a world with enough adventure, terror, and comic relief to keep them intrigued.
--VOYA, 5Q 4P M J

The brisk narrative mixes sly wit and occasional puns with lively battle scenes and mysterious revelations. . . an excellent entree to Pratchett's work.
--School Library Journal
