I love this book. It has a wonderful story of a father reading to his children at night and the fun they have. Also, for Discworld lovers, there are many well-known characters in a hilarious setting. The illustrations are beautiful.

Yeah, but it's PRATCHETT. :) Vimes reading Where's My Cow to his son, & bringing in a lot of the Discworld characters. Almost made me wish my kids were little so I could read it to them over & over again.

I greatly enjoyed this book, as I am familiar with the characters and am currently compelled to read "Are You My Mother?" aloud several times a day (including the page numbers). I particularly like the way in which the artist strove to suggest that, for example, a pair of chickens might somehow be mistaken for a cow.

Delightful book and I can't wait to read it to my great-grandchild! But Pratchett (and Sam Vimes) fans be aware - this is a book ABOUT the book that Sam reads to his son - it is not the book itself. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I bought this book for my grandson for Christmas so I can't review it now, but I can say that my son is a Big reader and he loves this author! The book looks precious.

This is a family favorite! Our 4 year old LOVED the funny sounds we'd make. We love getting more and more animated each time we read it. If you like to have fun when you read to your kids, if you like to be silly while reading, THIS IS YOUR BOOK!

If you're a Discworld fan you'll love this picture book full of humor for you, and your little ones (if you have any.) This book within a book is has wonderfully expressive illustrations and witty writing that's sure to please any audience. It's a favorite in the Vimes family, and it can be a favorite in yours too. Librarian Approved!

I purchased this book a couple of years ago for my daughter (now 4). She may not have understood the story but she loved the pictures and loved the sound (hack, gack, ptui!). Now I am reading it to her younger brother and sister and they love it, too! They may not know what Discworld is but they love looking at this book. A wonderful read for all ages.

We thoroughly enjoyed this book. So much so that when my then 18 month old started eating the pages, we went and bought another one. On its own, the story seems okay, but fans of Pratchett's work and readers of Thud will understand all the little nuances to the story.

This is a hysterically funny book - with brilliant illustrations - for people who know and love the characters. But don't try explaining it. Don't use this book as an introduction to Ankh-Morpork, Discworld, or the Pratchett books in general. This is not a condemnation, you understand - it's just that there are better entry points. For grownups, try 'Guards! Guards!' or 'Hogfather', for kids, 'The Amazing Maurice' or 'The Last Hero.' Send that copy of 'Where's My Cow?' to a deserving geek like me. I told you I couldn't get the point across - not even to Santa Claus!
