The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett
We get to meet Tiffany Aching in this installment of Discworld, which is actually the start of a new story arc within the Discworld. She's sensible and has guts, which means she might make a good witch.
Some characters from other story arcs show up, and it's always fun to see the intersections as well as Pratchett's footnotes which lead back to his other books. I think this is one of his more amusing books. Some of Pratchett's stuff is not as funny, but this one is quite good.
Tiffany does stuff like hitting a monster with a frying pan and attracting the attention of an amusing tribe of little men known as the Nac Mac Feegle. The little men are integral to the fun with their boisterous ways. Her foe is creepy, but still an amalgamation of "typical" villains with a Pratchett twist of course.
I'm looking forward to the next book with Tiffany Aching and of course the Nac Mac Feegle which is "A Hat Full of Sky."
