A boy and a talking horse share an adventurous and dangerous journey to Narnia to warn of invading barbarians.
Mibs Beaumont is turning 13, and discovers her "savvy"--a magical power unique to each member of her family--just as her father is injured in a terrible accident.
Armed with only a frying pan and her common sense, young witch-to-be Tiffany Aching must defend her home against the monsters of Fairyland. Luckily she has some very unusual help: the local Nac Mac Feegle—aka the Wee Free Men—a clan of fierce, sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men.
