Gr. 6-10. Incipient witch Tiffany Aching, who confronted danger in The Wee Free Men (2003), faces even greater peril in this equally quirky sequel. She is taken on as an apprentice witch by Miss Level, who is one person with two bodies--an oddity to say the least. Also, Tiffany is stalked and taken over by a hiver, an invisible, brainless entity that commands and distorts the mind of its host, which eventually dies. Luckily Tiffany is strong enough to hide a section of her mind within herself, but she is otherwise completely under the control of the hiver. It's the cantankerous Wee Free Men (or the Nac Mac Feegle) to the rescue, with the help of Miss Level and the wisest, most respected witch of all. The chase is part slapstick, part terror, and in the end, Tiffany herself sets things straight. Pratchett maintains the momentum of the first book, and fans will relish the further adventures of the "big wee hag," as Tiffany is known to the Feegles. Sally Estes

First of all, this is the first cookbook (and probably will remain the only cookbook) to ever make me snort coffee up my nose in a humiliatingly unladylike, un-charming manner in a coffee shop (add to that the fact that I'm a westerner currently living in China, and you can well imagine all the curious and concerned stares I got . . . thanks, Nanny Ogg!). I have since learned, for my own safety and pride, not to read this book while consuming hot -- make that any -- liquids. Nanny Ogg is hilarious enough in novels, but she really comes into her own when she's narrating a cookbook!
Secondly, you can actually make several of the recipes! The dwarf bread is an altered recipe that won't do you as well as a offensive weapon as ordinary dwarf bread, but many of the recipes are actually rather tasty. And, being blessed as I am with so many bookish friends, I am looking forward to using this book to create my own Discworld-themed party later this year.
Finally, this makes a great book for anyone who finds their life peppered with lots of short periods wherein you want something fun to read, but can't allow yourself to get sucked into a novel right then (bus rides, waiting rooms, airplanes on the runway before they annoyingly and for no good reason force you to turn off your electronic devises, meetings where you ought to be paying attention but frankly couldn't care less, tedious phone conversations with those particular friends who just need an "mm hmm" to think they're having a conversation . . . ).
RIP, dear, wonderful, brilliant Sir Terry Pratchett.
Equal rites is an early discworld novel and Pratchett's style and humour are still developing. At this stage the characters and millieu are fresh and developing. This is the first chance we readers have to meet Granny Weatherwax. The Unseen UNiversity should be familiar but will, like Granny, develop significantly in later books. This isn't the greatest witches book, nor is it the greatest wizards book but Equal Rites makes later books with Granny (especially Maskerade) so much better.
