Lords and Ladies Summary

Lords and Ladies: Discworld: The Witches Collection by Terry Pratchett

A laugh-out-loud and incredibly Discworld take on A Midsummer Night's Dream, featuring everyone's favourite witches, Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax

'The Discworld novels have always been among the most serious of comedies, the most relevant and real of fantasies' Independent


The fairies are back - but this time they don't just want your teeth.

It's Midsummer Night - no time for dreaming. Because sometimes, when there's more than one reality at play, too much dreaming can make the walls between them come tumbling down. And there's usually a damned good reason for there being walls between them in the first place - to keep things out. Things who want to make mischief and play havoc with the natural order.

Granny Weatherwax and her tiny coven are up against real elves. And even in a world of dwarfs, wizards, trolls, Morris dancers and the odd orang-utan, this is going to cause real trouble. With lots of hey-nonny-nonny and blood all over the place.

Readers love Lords and Ladies:

'I love how Pratchett's writing never ceases to amaze me. I love how no matter how tired, exhausted or deeply stressed I am all I need to feel better is to curl up with a book like this and have Granny Weatherwax sort the world out into what she knows it's supposed to be' Goodreads reviewer,

'Another fabulous, hilarious romp through the special world, that is the Discworld' Goodreads reviewer,

'This is my FAVORITE of the Witch series . . . if you delighted in Mrs. Weasley gettin all Sigourney Weaver on Bellatrix L in the last Harry Potter, YOU'LL LOVE the whole last third of the book' Goodreads reviewer,

'Granny is cunning and grumpy as ever; Nanny is frivolous but caring . . . I've been a fan of the witches ever since the first book . . . the fact that Pratchett managed to either keep the incredibly high level of quality or even improve on it, is fantastic' Goodreads reviewer,

'Your atypical typical Discworld-Romp with exciting action, light humour, great character studies and bloody serious wisdom' Goodreads reviewer,
