'No one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of modern endeavour' Daily Mail

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

Fairy godmothers develop a very deep understanding about human nature, which makes the good ones kind and the bad ones powerful.

Inheriting a fairy godmother role seemed an easy job . . . After all, how difficult could it be to make sure that a servant girl doesn't marry a prince?

Quite hard, actually, even for the witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick. That's the problem with real life - it tends to get in the way of a good story, and a good story is hard to resist.

Servant girls have to marry the prince, whether they want to or not. You can't fight a Happy Ending, especially when it comes with glass slippers and a rival Fairy Godmother who has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse.

“Superb”

I already have, and have read this book many times. My poor battered paperback needed replacing and this hardback edition is lovely to look at and hold. Just wish they did all the titles like this.

“A twist on a fairy tale”

Terry Pratchett has took a classic fairytale with the help of three which sisters, Glasslipper, pumpkin,Fairy godmother and a handsome prince!

This is my fourth favourite book of Discworld series.
