A Young Dwarf's Dream

Corporal Carrot has been promoted! He's now in charge of the new recruits guarding Ankh-Morpork, Discworld's greatest city, from Barbarian Tribes, Miscellaneous Marauders, unlicensed Thieves, and such. It's a big job, particularly for an adopted dwarf.

But an even bigger job awaits. An ancient document has just revealed that Ankh-Morpork, ruled for decades by Disorganized crime, has a secret sovereign! And his name is Carrott...

And so begins the most awesome epic encounter of all time, or at least all afternoon, in which the fate of a city—indeed of the universe itself!—depends on a young man's courage, an ancient sword's magic, and a three-legged poodle's bladder.


  • Good but flawed

    By Go-Fett
    Good read at a good price. Standard Pratchett Diskworld goodness except I am not a fan of his anti-gun message in the evil gonne plot device.
  • Best Pratchett

    By P.Wheeler
    I began reading the Discworld series with Men at Arms, and it remains my favorite of all Pratchett's books.
  • Humor Incarnate

    By DiscworldTraveler
    Terry Pratchett knows how to make you laugh at something both ridiculous and thought provoking. His varied knowledge shows a well rounded plethora of comedy that will keep you buying his books until you have read and own them all. Buy this book for a true crime and punishment story of hilarity.
