Ach, noo yer talkin’ oour language! Welcome to our second Terry Pratchett episode, featuring the indomitable Tiffany Aching! Join us as we discuss the first of Pratchett's YA novels and the terrifying, nightmare-ridden Fairyland that you never expected. We've got a lively conversation about whether baby brothers are inherently evil, entirely too much commentary on cheese, and even Grace's Gollum impression. Grab your frying pan and learn how to save the day - as 9-year-old Tiffany knows, it's all about your own selfish fury!


This is unfortunately the first episode for which we were unable to get the correct edition that we read as kids - here's the cover we grew up with (which, to be honest, is eerily similar but still preferred):

Patricia C. Wrede's story about a frying pan weapon, Utensile Strength, can be found in the Book of Enchantments.

And I found a ton of amazing Wee Free Men cosplay & fanart while doing research for this episode, so - enjoy.
