We’re going to read any novel by Terry Pratchett. Hope you enjoy his irreverent, often silly, fantasy novels about his creation Discworld. From Wikipedia…

Discworld is a comic fantasy book series written by the English author Terry Pratchett, set on the Discworld, a flat planet balanced on the backs of four elephants which in turn stand on the back of a giant turtle. The series began in 1983 with The Colour of Magic and continued until the final novel The Shepherd's Crown, which was published in 2015, following Pratchett's death. The books frequently parody or take inspiration from J. R. R. TolkienRobert E. HowardH. P. LovecraftCharles Dickens and William Shakespeare, as well as mythologyfolklore and fairy tales, often using them for satirical parallels with cultural, political and scientific issues.

Pratchett wrote other novels like Good omens, with Neil Gaiman, which was recently turned into a TV series. He wrote for all ages, was the best selling UK author throughout the 1990s and became a ‘Sir’ when he was knighted by the Queen in 2009. He passed from early onset Alzheimer’s in 2015.
