The Witch’s Vacuum Cleaner and Other Stories – Terry Pratchett

witchs-vacuum-cleanerThere is an ant searching for a better life and statues that walk and talk. There are witches, trolls, magic, adventure . . . even the wild, wild, west (West Wales, that is). Fourteen little stories full of everything you could want.

This is a collection of short stories that Terry Pratchett wrote for a weekly newspaper when he was only seventeen. I have long been a fan, and found it interesting to see the beginnings of his wit, imagination, originality, and to get a glimpse of books to come. Suggested as suitable for young teens, I feel that the stories are better as read alouds for younger children. They are too sweet and simplistic for today’s teens, but I enjoyed every one.
