"Feature[s] characters heroic or hiss-worthy, pranks and battles
aplenty, sly twists on the familiar tropes and his trademark mix of
silly humor and accurate moral commentary."
"It's a pleasure to read Pratchett's reflections in his
introduction and to see his signature warmth, wit, and intelligence
light up these simple stories. Appearing throughout the book,
Beech's amusing ink-and-wash drawings perfectly capture the magic
of the tales reminiscnet of Quentin Blake's illustrations."
--Booklist "My son and I discovered Terry Pratchett's books together, when he was about eleven years old. He'd be reading on his own and would start to laugh, and then eagerly read the passage aloud to me--and I'd do the same to him! Pratchett's books became a shared source of delight for us back then, and they still are today."
--Linda Sue Park, Newbery Medal winner "Accompanied by Beech's wiry Quentin Blake-like illustrations, as well as numerous typographical flourishes, this volume will please both its intended audience and older Pratchett completists."
--Publishers Weekly "Middle grade readers who enjoy Pratchett's other works or Dalh's tales are bound to enjoy this one."
--School Library Journal "Highly enjoyable fare."
