And now the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else. The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too). As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about football - the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football. Here we go! Here we go! Here we go!Read Less

The only bad thing, ever, about a new Terry Pratchett novel is reaching the last page. This latest in the series of Discworld novels is as brilliantly entertaining as the rest, featuring the wizards of Unseen University, the savvy Glenda, head of the Night Kitchen, her dim but beautiful assistant Juliet, knockabout Trev the football fan, and the mysterious and erudite Mister Nutt, who says he's a goblin but doesn't act like one...
Besides Pratchett's oft-recurring theme of unthinking prejudice, this time out he takes a look at the appeal of sports, celebrity and the fashion world, the importance of candle dribbling, and the value of knowing how to make a Really Good Pie. Providing the usual mix of laugh-out-loud fun and thoughtful insight into the nature of society (human and otherwise), this book will not disappoint
