The third Discworld novel.
 
They say that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it is not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.
 
There are some situations where the correct response is to display the sort of ignorance which happily and wilfully flies in the face of the facts. In this case, the birth of a baby girl, born a wizard -- by mistake. Everybody knows that there's no such thing as a female wizard. But now it's gone and happened, there's nothing much anyone can do about it. Let the battle of the sexes begin.

From the Publisher:

"A sequence of unalloyed delight" - Guardian

"Truly funny books are very few and far between. Equal Rites is not only fizzy and hilarious, but is also a wonderful story well told ... This is his best book. Highly recommended" - The Good Book Guide

"A delightful. yarn, logically illogical as only Terry Pratchett can write. He's delightful, an utter nutter and funster-punster" - Anne McCaffrey

"You won't stop grinning except to chuckle or sometimes roar with laughter. The most hilarious fantasy since - come to think of it, since Pratchett"s previous outing" - Kirkus Reviews

From the Back Cover:

Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels, consistent number one bestsellers in England, have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody along with Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.

In Equal Rites, a dying wizard tries to pass on his powers to an eighth son of an eighth son, who is just at that moment being born. The fact that the son is actually a daughter is discovered just a little too late. . . .
