Anyone else having problems with the links to footnotes in the ePub version? Just checked this out and I'm super frustrated already. Would switch to a print copy, but I guess KCLS doesn't have one. Aargh!

Witches Abroad was my introduction to Discworld and continues to be one of my favorite Discworld novels. The witches themselves are delightful, and the tension between witches and godmothers enjoyable.

Humorous Fantasy. Rival fairy godmothers Desiderata Hollows and Lady Lilith de Tempscire have radically different destinies in mind for their godchild Emberella, a servant girl of Genua who will one day marry a prince (or not, if Desiderata has her way). Although Desiderata's sudden death suggests that Lilith's love of happily-ever-after (no matter what) will prevail, an emergency intervention on the part of witches Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg ensures that nothing goes to plan -- anyone's plan. Although it's the 12th book in the late Terry Pratchett's phenomenally popular Discworld series, Witches Abroad stands on its own. Fantasy newsletter November 2015

Meet a good witch and an evil witch, toss in a cat, and relatives and you are off on another adventure.
