Tiffany Aching’s Guide to Being a Witch is an “in-universe” book about witchcraft “written by” Tiffany Aching with input from several other Discworld characters. It’s the first published Discworld material by Rhianna Pratchett, who co-authored it with children’s author and fellow videogame industry veteran Gabrielle Kent.


“They say you don't find witchcraft, it finds you...”

An illustrated and practical guide to being a witch in Discworld, covering everything you've ever wanted to know from telling the bees to magical cheese, from working with other witches to dealing with elves, from tending flocks to fending off forces from other worlds. This beautiful and practical guide has been compiled by Tiffany Aching herself, including snippets of remembered wisdom from Granny Aching alongside notes from Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Miss Tick, and Rob Anybody who offer their own unique perspectives on all things witchcraft. Whether you're a herbologist or a headologist, this book will inspire and empower new witches and seasoned practitioners alike.

With colourful illustrations from Paul Kidby throughout, this brilliant in-world guide is the perfect addition to any Discworld collection.
