Please consider buying some books for these schools if you can! There are lots to choose from (including Kick), and I can only imagine how useful all the free resources must be to educators.

Where should I start with Pratchett? Is it as simple as The Colour of Magic or would you suggest a different entry point? I apologise for the shock and offence this response is probably causing you.

Thanks for the great review, Dylan! I used to be a Newcastle fan (mainly because of Alan Shearer), but I've lived in Norwich for several years so I now support the Canaries.
