Be careful what you wish for…
Once upon a time there was a fairy godmother named Desiderata who had a good heart, a wise head, and poor planning skills—which unforunately left the Princess Emberella in the care of her other (not quite so good and wise) godmother when DEATH came for Desiderata. So now it's up to Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg to hop on broomsticks and make for far-distant Genua to ensure the servant girl doesn't marry the Prince.
But the road to Genua is bumpy, and along the way the trio of witches encounters the occasional vampire, werewolf, and falling house (well this is a fairy tale, after all). The trouble really begins once these reluctant foster-godmothers arrive in Genua and must outwit their power-hungry counterpart who'll stop at nothing to achieve a proper “happy ending”—even if it means destroying a kingdom.

Quotes

    Dannihas quotedlast year
    “There’s nothing wrong with happy endings,” said Magrat hotly.
    “Listen, happy endings is fine if they turn out happy,” said Granny, glaring at the sky. “But you can’t make ’em for other people. Like the only way you could make a happy marriage is by cuttin’ their heads off as soon as they say ‘I do’, yes? You can’t make happiness…”
    Granny Weatherwax stared at the distant city.
    “All you can do,” she said, “is make an ending.”

    “Am I dead?”
    THE ANSWER TO THAT, said Death, IS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN NO AND YES.
    Dannihas quotedlast year
    The nobles of Genua had enough experience to know what it means when a ruler says something is not compulsory.
