wee free men

I listened to The Wee Free Men, a story of Discword (although I didn't recognize any Discword characters that I knew from other books so far) by British fantasy author and all around funny guy Terry Pratchett. The story is spun with his usual witty, silly style. We are introduced to Tiffany Aching, a young witch-wannabe, who travels into fairyland to rescue her little brother, a not altogether appealing creature who is overly found of sweets. With the help of the Wee Free Men --who are very small, very fast, and have bright blue skin -- Tiffany must conquer the eerie cold dream-world of Fairyland and return home to the warmth of the Chalk country, even if it means her world will never be quite the same again.
I listened to it -- absolutely terrific accents for the Wee Free Men voices- 7.5 hours.
