"Pratchett's one-liners, the comic dialogue of the Feegles, the satire about teenagers and the credulousness of the ordinary folk make for a characteristically entertaining mix." Sunday Times "One of the best and funniest authors alive" Independent "Head and shoulders above even the best of the rest. He is screamingly funny. He is wise. He has style ... Splendid" Daily Telegraph "Oodles of dry wit, imagination and shrewdly observed characters" Independent on Sunday "The combination of Pratchett's genius for writing deadpan humour and Robinson's genius for reading it is a match made in heaven."
