‘It was octarine, the colour of magic. It was alive and glowing and vibrant and it was the undisputed pigment of the imagination . . .’
Somewhere between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a magical world not totally unlike our own. Except for the fact that it travels through space on the shoulders of four giant elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an astronomically huge star turtle, of course. Join Rincewind the unqualified ‘Wizzard’, and Twoflower the tourist whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land in the book that began Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series back in 1983. The Mended Drum has exploded, Ankh-Morpork is burning, and a spell from the magical Octavo is causing one big headache! Assisted by a maniacal Luggage made of Sapient Pearwood, our unlikely heroes escape into the chaos of trolls, dragons and a demon called Bel-Shamharoth in a journey across the Discworld that takes them over the Rim of the world!
The Colour of Magic is the first book in the Wizards series, (but you can read the Discworld novels in any order!).
