The Wee Free Men: The Beginning by Terry Pratchett (HarperCollins)

Spellbinding and downright hilarious, Pratchett’s tales of witch-in-training Tiffany Aching always leaves you aching (Ha! get it?) for more. In the first installment, Tiffany discovers her burgeoning powers and, armed with only a frying pan and the help of the wee free men (little blue men with a penchant for drinking and fighting), sets out to save her brother from the evil queen of Faerie. This is a great introduction to Prachett’s weird and wonderful Discworld. Wee Free Men: The Beginning contains the first two books in the series, Wee Free Men & Hat Full of Sky! –Casey S.
