Where's My Cow? by Terry Pratchett

Author: Terry Pratchett
Illustrator: Melvyn Grant
ISBN # 038560937X

This is a book about reading a book, which turns into a different book. But it all ends happily...

Where's My Cow? is dubbed "a picture book for adults" & is a companion book to Pratchett's latest Discworld novel, Thud! (which is high up my "to read very soon" list!). It is an absolute delight to read (it only takes a few minutes, but they're fun minutes) & Grant's illustrations are superb (look carefully in at the background details for a few "in jokes").

An essential addition to any Pratchett collection - especially in homes where there are young 'uns to read it to. So long as you don't mind them shouting "buggrit!" forever after...

Rating: 10/10
