5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasic 11 Sep 2007
Verified Purchase
There are some truly incredible images on this calendar - a couple of no so goods - but overall a massive improvement on last years.

My favourites so far are January Going Postal; the February dragon; June and the Amazing Maurice; July for Rincewind, Twoflower and the Luggage; August's snakes and the orange-red valley; October and the sleepwalker and November and that beautiful meteorite carriage ride.

The others are March and commander Vimes and Little Sam; for April it's the Wee Free Men; May is a Pug (from this year's release Making Money) and December is the Wintersmith and Tiffany.

I missed one, did you notice? September made me smile - all I'll say is "I ATEN'T DEAD".

Overall its a fantastic calendar, and it is more in the lines of the greatest of the Tolkien ones. Fantastic to see such care and detail, it's a marvel that I will treasure.

This item was sold out when I ordered it. I was notified straight away and chose not to wait for a copy and brought something else from the site! Excellent service as usual.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, but not completely 27 May 2008
By C. Durrill - Published on Amazon.com

I was hoping for Kidby art. Granted, there are some lovely interpretations of Mr. Pratchett's works, but the rest feel like filler. Hopefully, if there is a 2009, this will be fixed.
