Monstrous Regiment (Discworld, #31) - Terry Pratchett I re-read this one for Archive of our Own tag wrangler purposes. Did the little lads have first names? Did Blouse? What about Emmeline? Did she get a family name? Answers: yes, no and no. FYI Magda "Tonker" Halter, Betty "Shufti" Manickle, Alice "Wazzer" Goom and Tilda "Lofty" Tewt. I think, and it's been ages since I last read the first thirty-odd Discworld books so I could be wrong, that this is the most serious dealing, as it does, with rape, abuse, stolen children and child labour.
