Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett

Find in catalogTerry Pratchett has long been a favorite of mine. This novel, which is geared for young adults, is delightful. It is part of the Discworld series, containing 41 books… none of which I’ve read. This book can stand alone, though there were references to other stories in the series. Tiffany Aching is a young witch, learning her craft. In the fall of her 13th year, she gets caught up by the music of the Morris dance, and inadvertently piques the interest of the Wintersmith – whereas he is supposed to fall in love with the Summer Lady. While he is trying to woo and impress Tiffany, he brings winter down on the land. She must outwit the love-struck would be Romeo, and bring Spring into the world. Her Wee Free Men, help out, as always… with the best of intentions!
