The 2023 Pratchat Challenge - hosted by mcbenzie

A book with a child or young person protagonist
At the other end of the scale, Pratchett also writes brilliantly about - and for - children and young people. You don’t have to pick a children’s or YA book for this prompt, either; there are plenty of books about children written for adults.

Suggestions to come.
