By Terry Pratchett
Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist eine Neuübersetzung des erstmals 1995
im Wilhelm Goldmann Verlag auf Deutsch erschienenen Romans.
Das kleine Königreich Lancre bereitet sich auf ein ganz besonderes Mittsommernachtsfest vor. Denn an diesem Tag soll die Hochzeit der jungen Hexe Magrat Knoblauch mit Verenz, dem König von Lancre, gefeiert werden. Doch dann ermöglicht das stümperhaft ausgeführte Ritual einer Gruppe von Nachwuchs-Hexen den boshaften Elfen ihren Übertritt in die Menschenwelt, dort wollen sie nichts weniger, als die Herrschaft an sich zu reißen. An der Seite von Oma Wetterwachs und Nanny Ogg läuft die von ihrer damenhaften Prinzessinnenrolle ohnehin ziemlich gelangweilte Magrat zu großer shape auf. Und der märchenhafte Mittsommernachtstraum wird etwas turbulenter als ursprünglich geplant.
