My daughter and I decided to listen the the Tiffany Aching series on our roadtrip to Atlanta, Georgia. We had already completed the first one, so as we started out this morning, we loaded the second one, A Hat Full of Sky on my iPod. It has been so much fun to listen to the combination of wit and wisdom wonderfully read by Stephen Briggs. Here are the quotes that caught our ears especially as we travelled: Once we were blobs in the sea, and then fishes, and then lizards and rats and then monkeys, and hundreds of things in between. This hand was once a fin, this hand once had claws! In my human mouth I have the pointy teeth of a wolf and the chisel teeth of a rabbit and the grinding teeth of a cow! Our blood is as salty as the sea we used to live in! When we're frightened, the hair on our skin stands up, just like it did when we had fur. We are history! Everything we've ever been on the way to becoming us, we still are. [...]
Professor Monty Bladder's Three Ring Circus is typical British style humour - 'Bladder' having its literal meaning but also meaning 'drunk' (bladdered) and 'Monty' is a reference to the British slang term for ' going the whole way" as in the movie The Full Monty meaning to 'take it all off and go completely naked.' There is also the obvious " Monty Python's Flying Circus' which Pratchett references regularly. Granny Weatherwax no longer needs any kind of introduction or summary. But it is important to note that Tiffany herself has already become a very special character - and this is only her second book! She might be only 11 in this volume, but she's already thoroughly fleshed out, has her head and heart in the right place and I'm now convinced where this is headed (I had a hunch before but this made it clear, though I don't want to think about it yet). She's smart, quirky, loveable, headstrong ... a proper hag. ;) Tiffany’nin küçük mavi yoldaşları Nac Mac Feegle klanı ise bir şeylerin fena halde ters gittiğinin farkındadır. Herhangibir Rob önderliğinde bir grup Feegle, Tiffany’i bulmak ve mini koca-karılarını kurtarmak, karşılarına da her ne çıkacak olursa olsun kapışmak üzere yola çıkarlar.

Witches were a bit like cats. They didn’t much like one another’s company, but they did like to know where all the other witches were, just in case they needed them.” Terry worked for many years as a journalist and press officer, writing in his spare time and publishing a number of novels, including his first Discworld novel, The Color of Magic, in 1983. In 1987, he turned to writing full time.
