He's said that he will write a fourth and final Tiffany book - I Shall Wear Midnight. :) There's also a chance that Esk from Equal Rites will be in it. :wink:

That sounds very good, Tony :lol: Thank you very much. Fingers crossed Sir Terry stays well enough to do many more Discworld & other books.
Best wishes,
Tiff

I gave away my copy of Wee Free Men, I'll probably buy another copy for my grand-daughter's birthday as she likes H**** P***** and loves Roald Dahl (as did her Mum).

Hat Full of Sky and Wintersmith are ready and waiting for her. She's 8 but her reading age is 12.

The Susan books are good follow ons from the Tiffany Aching books in my opinion, since although they are more adult, there's enough similarity that they won't be turned off.

Same here. I read Hogfather first, then Feet of Clay. Its still my fave book. Love it! :) It doesnt have too many mystery characters, and it is funny and philosophical at once.
And theatrical
The only question remaining is: HAVE YOU BEEN NAUGHTY OR NICE...
:wink:

I'd say start with Tiffany Aching or Maurcice. Or something that connects to her interests.
