Discworld : Tiffany Aching 2 : A Hat Full of Sky product reviews

Eleven-year-old Tiffany Aching wants to be a real witch. But a real witch doesn't casually step out of her body, leaving it empty. Tiffany does - and there's something just waiting for a handy body to take over. Something ancient and horrible, which can't die.

Now Tiffany's got to learn to be a real witch really quickly, with the help of arch-witch Mistress Weatherwax and the truly amazing Miss Level.

Oh, yes. And the Nac Mac Feegle - the rowdiest, toughest, smelliest bunch of fairies ever to be thrown out of Fairyland for being drunk at two in the afternoon. They'll fight anything...

The sequel to the very popular and funny Wee Free Men, this tale once again brings us into contact with the notorious blue pictsies and their 'ex-hag' Tiffany, once betrothed to The Man Yan of this particular mound of Nacs, Rob Anybody and thus the Kelda (nominal matriarch) of the mound. Here there are once again thrown together to hold the barrier between worlds and keep the Discworld safe from invasion from another world passing by.

This time they have help in the form of Mistress Weatherwax, the poster pin-up Witch of all Witches. What Esme Weatherwax doesn't know about magic and Witchery, what she hasn't accomplished with her mastery of all things occult, could be listed on the back of a Nac Mac Feegle with a vivid marker. Even so, it will fall to Tiffany to give the final stroke that will either save or doom the world... which is a bit of a harsh gig to give an 11 year old girl, but that's what needs to be done.

Once again we are reminded that the world is willing to come to an agreement with someone if they only think about what they need instead of just jumping for the brightest, noisiest, easiest way of getting the job done. "It's all headology, how you think about it, not what you wave about."

Overall, a witty, insightful sequel full of sparkling humour, thought-provoking storyline, and a lot of hidden layers of laughs, if you only look and think about it. As with all of Terry's books, if you do a bit of research you can uncover a lot more than you first thought was there.
