A nightmarish danger threatens from the other side of reality . . .
Armed with only a frying pan and her common sense, young witch-to-be Tiffany Aching must defend her home against the monsters of Fairyland. Luckily she has some very unusual help: the local Nac Mac Feegle—aka the Wee Free Men—a clan of fierce, sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men.
Together they must face headless horsemen, ferocious grimhounds, terrifying dreams come true, and ultimately the sinister Queen of the Elves herself. . . .

Classic Pratchett, a bit less complicated for the younger reader.
Great for all ages.
I'm 42 and just discovering Sir Terry fir the first time. Tiffany is one of my favorite characters, I love the feegles.
One of a very few
Out of roughly 700-1000 books I have read in my 20 years, this one has really stuck with me. I first read it in high school, and I never truly forgot it. Now several years later (including my first years of college) I picked up a digital copy for my I pad. I have not regretted doing so. Out of the books vie read, this one and this grouped with 30 others. THATS how good I think it is.
The Wee Free Men is a book about a young girl learning what it means to grow up and taking responsibility. Also the musings that she goes through during the story are so logical yet still original that they make the story just that much more interesting.
"If something was magic before, but then you learn how it was done, dose not make it stop being magic"
Paraphrasing, but you get the idea. Stuff like that crops up all through the book.
