Terry Pratchett is my favorite writer and Discworld is my favorite fictional universe.

There are three Tiffany Aching novels and A Hat Full of Sky is the second in the series. I really enjoy all three books, but this is my favorite of the three, it includes insight into more characters of Discworld and adds a lot to the history of the universe.
In A Hat Full of Sky Tiffany is pursued by a great and ancient danger and the Wee Free Men along with Granny Weatherwax step in to help Tiffany in their own special ways.

I bought this book from a bookstore in 2007 and have read it multiple times.
I would rate this book a 9 out of 10 and highly recommend it to anyone who like humorous fiction although I would recommend reading Wee Free Men first.
