"A gloriously old-fashioned and funny story...Pratchett includes plenty of jokes. His prose is suberb which, combinted with Peter Dennis's engaging illustrations, makes this a brilliant choice for reading aloud." (Evening Standard)
A charming tale for people of all ages (but especially for young Sam Vimes) from the pen of Miss Felicity Beedle, Discworld's premier children's author.See all Product description

If you buy this one wondering what it's about, perhaps you should stop now. This entire book centres around poo, as the name would suggest. Without spoiling the story, it's obsessively poo themed. But it's done in a typical, charming Discworld way. There are also illustrations in this one! How nice! My Kindle (3G + Keyboard) displays this perfectly well, too.
As a final note, this is also an incredibly short book compared to some previous Discworld novels.
Make what you will of it, as it is a charmingly well written book all about poo. Now, if you will excuse me, I must go wash my hands.
The author and his associates have worked to produce and deliver a little gem of a story, with a mix of jokes to amuse and delight a child reading the book, a child having it read to them and an older person having to read it to a child or even reading it for their own enjoyment.
I really hope that the other volumes in the series listed in this book prove to be more than just gags, and his muse will grant the author the creativity to bring one or more of them to life.
Truly a work with both body and function.
