Tiffany Aching put one foot wrong, made just one little mistake—and now the spirit of winter is in love with her, in this Discworld novel for readers 11 and up by Carnegie Medal winner Terry Pratchett. The Wintersmith gives her roses and icebergs and showers her with snowflakes, which is tough when you're 13, but also just a little bit ... cool. The real problem is that if Tiffany doesn't work out how to deal with him, there will never be another springtime. Crackling with energy and humor, this is the third tale from Pratchett in a sequence about young witch Tiffany Aching and the Wee Free Men, the Nac Mac Feegles, who are determined to help Tiffany whether she wants it or not.

"Here's the third Discworld story for younger readers in a series that began with The Wee Free Men and continued in A Hat Full of Sky.... While Granny Weatherwax, Miss Perspicacia Tick, and sundry veteran witches work with Tiffany to restrain the Wintersmith's zeal, the Wee Free Men set off to fetch a Hero to assist Tiffany, along the way adopting a cantankerous blue cheese. Add an assortment of junior witches-in-training, and yet another rollicking, clever, and quite charming adventure is brought to readers, who will find themselves delighted again—or for the first time—by Pratchett's exuberant storytelling."—Booklist (starred review)
