Wintersmith, by Terry Pratchett: 4.5/5

I didn’t like the artwork in the first panel, so I re-did it!

Wintersmith. Terry Pratchett. 4.5 stars. At 13, Tiffany Aching has a lot to think about: she's trying to learn to be a witch, the Nac Mac Feegle are always underfoot, and she seems to have created a sentient cheese. She barely has time to decide how she feels about Roland, the Baron's son back home—so how will she deal with the unwanted-but-pretty-flattering attentions of the personification of winter? Best Thing: Funny! Makes you see the humor in the trials and tribulations of teenagers, without trivializing them. Worst Thing: The ending is a little predictable.

Good for: Everybody, especially if you like the first two books, fairy tales, Harry Potter, mythology, or Terry Pratchett (Discworld).

Here’s the image that was in the first panel before: The Nac Mac Feegle making a Tiffany Aching snowman.
