This marked my initial encounter with the denizens of Discworld, and I’m enthusiastically plotting my expedition to unearth more tales in which Tiffany and the Nac Mac Feegles take center stage.
These diminutive, affable rascals stand at a mere six inches in stature, adorned with fiery red hair and vivid blue tattoos. Their banter, once deciphered through their unique brogue—a delightful blend of Scottish and Irish influences—proves to be uproarious. They proudly dub themselves “pictsies,” not to be mistaken for pixies, as they lack wings. Masters of swordplay, pilfering, imbibing, and brawling, their only rivals are their simultaneous indulgences in drink and fisticuffs.
Our young female protagonist, at a tender nine years old and the youngest among her siblings, has honed her self-reliance. She draws wisdom from her late Granny Acking, a figure Tiffany regards as a witch and aspires to emulate. However, with Granny’s passing, Tiffany must forge her path without her tutelage. When her little brother falls prey to the Queen of the Fairies, Tiffany takes it upon herself to mount a rescue mission. With the aid of a loquacious toad, formerly a lawyer, she enlists the Nac Mac Feegles to “reclaim” her sibling.
Attempting to convey the comical interplay between Tiffany and her army of azure-hued companions within the constraints of words proves an arduous task. Therefore, I’ll share two cherished passages from the book:
First, when the Feegles apologize for tardiness, unrelated to getting lost or imbibing—this time. Tiffany jests, “Well, at least there shouldn’t have been anything to drink in a lighthouse.” She chuckles, “Unless you drank the lamp oil, and no one would dare do that!” The pictsies abruptly fall silent. Tiffany quips, “It’s flammable, too. It’s a good thing you didn’t drink it, isn’t it?” As they huddle, whispers ensue, “What’s flammable mean?” “It means it catches fire!” “Okay, okay, dinna panic. No belchin’, and none of youse is to tak’ a leak anywhere near any naked flames, okay? And act nat’ral.”
Second, a side-splitting moment unfolds when Tiffany discovers herself under the scrutiny of a wee man clutching miniature bagpipes. He admits, “You’ve been watching me all the time?” “Aye, mistress. ’Tis oour task to watch o’er our kelda. I’m up here most o’ the time anyway because I’m studying to become a gonnagle.” He brandishes a set of mousepipes. “An’ they willna let me play doon there on account o’ them sayin’ my playin’ sounds like a spider tryin’ to fart through its ears, mistress.”
I heartily recommend this book to adults and older teenagers, primarily due to the linguistic intricacies of the Nac Mac Feegles’ speech. It’s worth noting that there is a mention of sheep mating practices on the farm, as well as a talking toad who occasionally curses in frogish.

I absolutely adore STP’s universe and its colorful denizens. This introduction to a potential new Wyrd Sister is truly outstanding. Fingers crossed that we get to see the return of the Jocks!
Audiobook The Wee Free Men by Cris Dukehart
I’ve delved deep into the Discworld series, exploring books I missed upon their initial release. The first one on my list was “The Truth” (book 25 in the series). However, I must admit that after the brilliance of “Night Watch,” this one feels like a bit of a letdown. It introduces a new witch and delves further into the world of the Nac Mac Feegle, but it seems like a small story stretched out into something larger—a short story that has been expanded beyond its natural bounds.
I couldn’t help but find it reminiscent of “Hogfather.” The world it presents, both real and unreal, has a similar vibe. The new witch, Tiffany, appears to have events thrust upon her in a way that leaves no doubt she’ll ultimately set things right. While there’s a sense of peril, it doesn’t feel like it will truly impede her progress, unlike the challenges faced by Granny Weatherwax in her adventures, where the stakes often feel more precarious. It all comes across as a bit too straightforward and easy.
In the grand tapestry of Discworld books, this one feels a bit run-of-the-mill. As I mentioned earlier, following the exceptional “Night Watch,” it’s a tough act to follow. Perhaps that’s why this story feels leaner. The plot is clear and engaging, yet it feels somewhat lacking in significant developments. It’s as though it’s been stretched out, but that doesn’t necessarily make it a poor read. It’s the second Discworld book that has left me feeling somewhat out of sync (the first being “The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents,” which didn’t quite capture the quintessential Discworld essence). It’s a good story but somewhat predictable, like a paint-by-numbers adventure. You can see how it will unfold, but you still derive enjoyment from the journey.
To draw a somewhat unusual analogy, this book is like a David Walliams novel compared to a Roald Dahl classic. The Walliams book is fun and enjoyable, but the Dahl story is better crafted and offers greater depth. That’s the sensation I get from this book. It could serve as a decent entry point for newcomers to the Discworld, but it doesn’t quite reach the level of greatness established by some of the series’ finest works.
