It s the night before Hogswatch. And it s too quiet. There s snow, there re robins, there re trees covered with decorations, but there s a notable lack of the big fat man who delivers the toys... He s gone. Susan the governess has got to find him before morning, otherwise the sun won t rise. And unfortunately her only helpers are a raven with an eyeball fixation, the Death of Rats and an oh god of hangovers. Worse still, someone is coming down the chimney. This time he s carrying a sack instead of a scythe, but there s something regrettably familiar... Ho. Ho. Ho. It s true what they say. You d better watch out...
The twentieth bestseller for the UK's fastest selling author.
About the Author
Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.
"Has the energy of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the inventiveness of Alice in Wonderland...It has also an intelligent wit and a truly original grim and comic grasp of the nature of things" -- A. S. Byatt * The Sunday Times *
