Be careful what you wish for... Once upon a time there was a fairy godmother named Desiderata who had a good heart, a wise head, and poor planning skills-which unfortunately left the Princess Emberella in the care of her other (not quite so good and wise) godmother when DEATH came for Desiderata. So now it's up to Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg to hop on broomsticks and make for far-distant Genua to ensure the servant girl doesn't marry the Prince. But the road to Genua is bumpy, and along the way the trio of witches encounters the occasional vampire, werewolf, and falling house (well this is a fairy tale, after all). The trouble really begins once these reluctant foster-godmothers arrive in Genua and must outwit their power-hungry counterpart who'll stop at nothing to achieve a proper "happy ending"-even if it means destroying a kingdom.

About the Author:

Terry Pratchett lives in Wiltshire. His Discworld series is a publishing phenomenon. He has been awarded four honorary doctorates. He won the Carnegie Medal for the Discworld novel MAURICE AND HIS AMAZING EDUCATED RODENTS. He was made an OBE in 1998.

From AudioFile:

In Terry PratchettÕs fantastical tale, a small sect of blundering witches sets out on a remarkable journey to the city of Genua to stop the princeÕs marriage. ItÕs a fun adventure geared toward the younger generation but thoroughly enjoyable by listeners of all ages. Narrator Nigel Planer is incredibly charming and thoroughly precise in his delivery. His witty English accent adds to the adventure and fantasy elements of this story. Planer is so good that his narration is less an inspired reading than a remarkable one-man show. A theatrical atmosphere is created from his rich pallet of ominous tones and whiny witchlike voices. L.B.
