FEET OF CLAY

Author: Terry Pratchett

Ages: 12+

Two mysterious deaths of old and insignificant men, a secret society of ceramic slaves, the poisoning of the nearly undefeatable Lord Vetinari, an ancient vampire with proof that Nobby Nobbs – technically human and with a certificate to prove it – is the Earl of Ankh-Morpork, and the first openly female dwarf the Disc has ever seen… the Watch has a lot to deal with

REVIEW: Lords and Ladies

LORDS AND LADIES

Author: Terry Pratchett

Ages: 12/13+ (adults included)

I have heard that this book is quite creepy. I’m not so sure. I think maybe ‘slightly creepy’ works better, unless mind control and extradimensional unstoppable invasions qualify as ‘considerably creepy’ for you, but

REVIEW: Making Money

MAKING MONEY

Author: Terry Pratchett

Ages: 12+ (adults included)

Making Money is an amazing, colorful, humorous and exiting example of Terry Pratchett’s best. It is the second of his books to focus on Moist van Lipwig (who is now being threatened to take charge of the mint) and is just

Author: Terry Pratchett

Ages: 12+ (adults included)

Snuff does tell stories looking over the shoulders of Samuel Vimes, commander of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, but it mainly takes place in the countryside – without the Watch. It is packed

REVIEW: Thud!

THUD!

Author: Terry Pratchett

Ages: 12+ (adults included)

Thud! is the typical Terry Pratchett book: hilarious, unexpected, original. It’s about the dwarf-hate-troll troll-hate-dwarf problem. It tells the origins of the
