There's trouble on the Aching farm -- a monster in the river, a headless horseman in the driveway and nightmares spreading down from the hills. And now Tiffany Aching's little brother has been stolen by the Queen of the Fairies (although Tiffany doesn't think this is entirely a bad thing).

Tiffany's got to get him back. To help her, she ha a weapon (a frying pan), her granny's magic book (well, _Diseases of the Sheep_, actually) and --

'Crivens! Whut aboot us ye daftie!'

-- oh yes. She's also got the Nac Mac Feegle, the Wee Free Men, the fightin', thievin', tiny blue-skinned pictsies who were thrown out of Fairyland for being Drunk and Disorderly...

A wise, witty and wonderfully inventive adventure set on the Discworld.

Comments by Terry:

"I'm also planning _For Fear Of Little Men_ (working title!) a classic fairy story but with the addition of the Nac Mac Feegle."

"Let's just say: when they trash a mushroom, it stays trashed..."

"The next full length DW book will be published in November 2002, to be followed by The Wee Free Men in May 2003."

-- Terry on, 3 Sep 2001

"It is possible that there will also be books in the spring -- certainly the Wee Free Men will be one, and it will be on the line of Maurice, ie, set on DW but ostensibly written for children and set outside the pattern of the main novels. I've not made any other decisions."

-- Terry on, 4 Sep 2001
