Isn't it?

Books By Author Terry Pratchett
Witch's Vacuum Cleaner, Paperback (June 2017)
Poor Mr Swimble is having a bad day. Rabbits are bouncing out of his hat, pigeons are flying out of his jacket and every time he points his finger, something magically appears - cheese sandwiches, socks ...even a small yellow elephant on wheels! It's becoming a real nuisance - and he's allergic to rabbits.
Raising Steam, Paperback (May 2017)
People love to hate the trains. They're essential - but everyone wishes there were more of them, and that they were faster, and most of all, that they would just run on time. But whenever something new is planned for the railway, there will always be someone with objections..

Alone and facing death, his only hope of salvation lies with a group of trolls.
Carpet People, Paperback (January 2017)» View all books by Terry Pratchett

But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples and there's a new story in the making. The story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet.
US Kirkus Review » An author's note explains that this volume, the first in the "Johnny Maxwell" trilogy, was written during the first Gulf War, though this is its first publication in the U.S. Johnny Maxwell is like many boys, spending his time after school busily blowing up alien ScreeWee fighters in his new computer game. Until one of the ScreeWee talks to him. She is Captain of the ScreeWee fleet, and she has asked Johnny for safe conduct back to ScreeWee space, because "[w]hen we die, we die. Forever." Juxtaposed against Johnny's inexplicably real involvement in a computer game-when he dreams, he enters game space and can wake up only when he "dies"-are the televised events of the first war in Iraq, when the nightly news showed missile's-eye views of the remote bombing of Baghdad. This offering doesn't pretend to subtlety at all, but the premise is so very intriguing, and so well-presented (in characteristically wry Pratchett fashion), that Johnny's cry for the essential humanity of all to be recognized, whether English, Iraqi or ScreeWee, loses none of its poignancy-or timeliness. (Fiction. 10-14) (Kirkus Reviews)
