About the Author-
  • TERRY PRATCHETT is the acclaimed creator of the global bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983. Raising Steam is his fortieth Discworld novel. His books have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he is the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, as well as being awarded a knighthood for services to literature. After falling out with his keyboard he now talks to his computer. Occasionally, these days, it answers back.
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Julian Rhind-Tutt's delivery is as varied as the diverse characters in this collection, written when the author was a teenager. The introduction is pure Pratchett as he tells his young audience how he came to be a writer. In the title story, young Ralph sounds appropriately nervous because he must fill in for "real" knights who are on vacation or out sick. The most fun is a story called "The Great Race," which abounds with German and English accents as the competitors race--and cheat--to the finish line. Rhind-Tutt is outstanding with Pratchett's witty wordplay, and his spirited descriptions will keep young listeners tuned in. Sound effects such as buzzing bees, birds, yawns, and racing cars are genuine and add to the lively atmosphere. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
