Sir Terry Pratchett was the internationally bestselling author of more than thirty books, including his phenomenally successful Discworld series. His young adult novel, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, won the Carnegie Medal, and Where's My Cow?, his Discworld book for "readers of all ages," was a New York Times bestseller. His novels have sold more than seventy five million (give or take a few million) copies worldwide. Named an Officer of the British Empire "for services to literature," Pratchett lived in England. He died in 2015 at the age of sixty-six.
"Fans will also find plenty of well-loved elements: exuberant
wordplay, vaudevillian humor, the rambunctious blue-skinned Nac Mac
Feegle, and-beneath it all-a susurrus of shivery archetype and
myth. Pratchett's final work is a tour de force of compassion,
great wit, and gleeful storytelling."--Publishers Weekly
"There is something deeply suitable about the significant focus here on legacy and what is left behind. Savor this one; it's literally the last authorized book coming."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
