Where’s My Cow? by Terry Pratchett
Title: Where’s My Cow?
Author: Terry Pratchett
Genre/ issues: Picture book. Discworld. Comedy.
I mentioned a little while ago that Where’s My Cow was the only book I’d not tracked down for my #discworld collection. Today, it arrived in the mail – an unbirthday gift from Jacob’s mother as part of a special collection of assorted presents for Jacob and the kids. It gave me such joy to open it, and to read it before we headed in to campus this morning.
A story about a story that turns into another story – Sam Vimes delights in reading Sam Jr his favourite bedtime book, but soon gets frustrated with how far removed it is from Sam Jr’s reality. So, like many parents before him, he makes some slight …. modifications to the tale.
I love Vimes, and I was delighted to see Lady Sibyl make an appearance in this. Thank you, Belinda Hill, this is a much-loved addition to my collection.
