The Time-travelling Caveman
*A brand new collection of short stories from the incredible Sir Terry Pratchett!*
Imagination is an amazing thing.
It can take you to the top of the highest mountain, or down to the bottom of the deepest depths of the sea.
This where it took Doggins on his Awfully Big Adventure: a quest full of magic and flying machines. (And the world’s best joke – trust me, it’s hilarious.)
It took three young inventors to the moon (where they may or may not have left a bottle of lemonade) and a caveman on a trip to the dentist.
You can join them on these adventures, and many more, in this incredible collection of stories...
From the greatest imagination there ever was.
Written for local newspapers when Terry Pratchett was a young lad, these never previously published stories are packed full of anarchic humour and wonderful wit.
A must-have for Terry fans... and young readers looking for a fix of magic.
Sir Terence David John "Terry" Pratchett, OBE (1948–2015) was an English author of fantasy novels, especially comical works. He is best known for his Discworld series of about 40 volumes. Pratchett's first novel, The Carpet People, was published in 1971, and since his first Discworld novel (The Colour of Magic) was published in 1983, he wrote two books a year on average. His 2011 Discworld novel Snuff was at the time of its release the third-fastest-selling hardback adult-audience novel since records began in the UK, selling 55,000 copies in the first three days.
These short story collections contain short stories written by Terry Pratchett (using the pseudonym "Uncle Jim") for the Bucks Free Press paper's "Children's Circle" section. Most of the stories were originally published in the late 1960s, and have now been re-edited and collected.
Some of the stories found in these volumes were later extended by the author into the novels The Carpet People and Truckers.
Children's Circle Stories consists of four works. The current recommended reading order for the series is provided below.
