You also get a glimpse of a character that may be the beginnings of Nanny Ogg. And I think this is the earliest work with a brief cameo of a chara [...]

    6. I love Terry Pratchett's Discworld books! While this is not one, his same whit is there and it is a very delightful (and very funny) story. I loved Johnny and his dead (and alive) friends. If you love Mr. Pratchett's other books you will love this one as well!
