If you trust in yourselfand believe in your dreamsand follow your star you ll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren t so lazy Pure Pratchett an ageless story with universal appeal to both children and adults This is one of the most serious stories of Discworld as Terry Pratchett knew perfectly well that if you write to and about children you have to be serious otherwise it won t workI wish I could have been like Tiffany Aching as a child unafraid with First Sight to see what is really there and Second Thoughts thinking about what you are thinking and lots of common sense Hell as an adult I still want to be Tiffany Well First Sight does not work all the time though I am getting better at Second Thoughts and ThirdI don t have a daughter I have a small son nevertheless I hope we will read this book and others of the Discworld series together one day to remind me and show him that you don t need to own and brandish a sword to be a hero sometimes a firm grip on a frying pan and on facts suffices it takes courage to accept and to be yourself but it s worth it just because you are not a princeprincess it does not mean that you don t have your own story that you have to go and uestion stories and not take them at face value Them as can do has to do for them as can t And someone has to speak up for them as has no voices It doesn t stop being magic just because you know how it works Netgalley arc provided by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review
