Sixth in publication order of the Discworld books, this introduces The Witches--Nanny Ogg, Granny Weatherwax and Magrat Garlick--who happen to be my favorite characters. I read this a few years ago, and just re-read it recently and it was wonderful to be back in Lancre getting to know the three gals and their distinct and unique personalities all over again. When the king of Lancre is murdered, the new king starts doing things that just goes against the grain of the land. Finally, Granny Weatherwax and has enough and decides to very subtly--ha ha!--go against the age old policy of witches not interfering in politics and help to put the rightful heir to the throne where he belongs. Trouble is, he's only a toddler! What to do, what do to? Much hilarity ensues as well as plenty of semi-buried dry English humor, puns and wordplay. An all-time favorite of mine.
