The latest Discworld juvenile: the story of Tiffany Aching continues. There seemed to be an awful lot of material here recycled from previous Discworld books, and while it's got good parts I found it somewhat disappointing overall.

I'm particularly annoyed that Doubleday have chosen to publish this book in the same format as the regular Discworld series, rather than the smaller (and much more attractive) format used by the previous children's books; it makes the text is uncomfortably huge (since there's no more actual content here than the last book), and I can't shelve it in the right place.

I wouldn't say it's a bad book, but it's not up to the high standards set by the rest of the series.
