Terry Pratchett - Witches Abroad

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

But for the witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick, traveling to the distant city of Genua, things are never that simple...

Servant girls have to marry the prince. That's what life is all about. You can't fight a Happy Ending.

At least - up until now...

Additional Notes

Continuing his ever growing hobby of parodying stories Witches Abroad is all about stories. More to the point, Lily Weatherwax, Granny Weather wax's evil sister, is controlling people with stories. She has turned a frog into a prince and is preparing the maid Cinderella-style to be his wife. 

The book is full of fairy tales making this book one of Pratchett's best. Admittedly, it is not his best but it is up there. For any Discworld faithful, especially those reading the books in order, this book is still a must buy (then again, I say that about all his books!)
