Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Terry Pratchett

Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Terry Pratchett
"This never-before-published collection of fourteen funny and inventive tales by acclaimed author Sir Terry Pratchett features a memorable cast of inept wizards, sensible heroes, and unusually adventuresome tortoises.

Including more than one hundred black-and-white illustrations, the appealingly designed book celebrates Pratchett’s inimitable wordplay and irreverent approach to the conventions of storytelling.

These accessible and mischievous tales are an ideal introduction for young readers to this beloved author. Established fans of Pratchett’s work will savor the playful presentation of the themes and ideas that inform his best-selling novels."- summary from Amazon

I am a huge fan of Terry Pratchett and really enjoyed reading this collection of short stories from him over the years. From what I read, this is a combination of stories he wrote when he was younger as well as a few new ones. The artwork in the book too really adds to the stories and makes them so fun and playful. It's such a seriously good book and I highly recommend it to everyone.
