Susan the governess has to find him before morning, otherwise the sun won't rise.

"Discworld is more complicated and satisfactory than Oz. Truly original. Pratchett creates a brilliant excess of delectable detail!" (Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine) "The characters, the conceits, the jibes at contemporary intellectual currents are delightful." (AudioFile)
"You needn't have read Pratchett before to laugh uproariously and think seriously about the meanings of Christmas." (Amazon.com)
Excellent twist on christmas. Makes you really think. Recomended for extra jolly, and other things ending in -olly.
bitewise great, the rest a bit slow compared to other great titles of the discworld novels
Terry Pratchett ist zu Recht zum Ritter ernannt worden. Seine Geschichten sind einfach wunderbar. :)
