Witches Abroad (1991) Terry Pratchett (Discworld)

Witches AbroadThis is the third book in the witches story arc.

Magrat is left a magic wand and the responsibility of being a fairy godmother.

Luckily, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg decide to help her out.

“Look,” said Magrat desperately, “why don’t I go by myself?”

“’Cos you ain’t experienced at fairy godmothering,” said Granny Weatherwax.

This was too much even for Magrat’s generous soul. “Well, nor are you,” she said.

“That’s true,” Granny conceded. “But the point is…the point is…the point is we’ve not been experienced for a lot longer than you.”

“We’ve got a lot of experience of not having any experience,” said Nanny Ogg happily.

As with all Discworld books, the best bits appear suddenly without warning, and if you aren’t paying attention you’ll miss them.

The witches flew along a maze of twisty little canyons, all alike.

Wisdom is one of the few things that looks bigger the further away it is.

What did you say?” said Magrat.

Nanny Ogg put her hand over her eyes. Asking someone to repeat a phrase you’d not only heard very clearly but were also exceedingly angry about was around Defcon II in the lexicon of squabble.

In Genua, someone set out to make dreams come true.

Remember some of your dreams?

“Put it like this,” said Nanny, trying to be reasonable against all odds. “What could we possibly find under there that’s worse than we could imagine?”

They each took a handle.
