Where’s My Cow is a picture book for children featuring Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch and his young son, Sam Jr. Set in the real world of Ankh-Morpork, the senior Vimes reads the book to his son every day at six O’Clock.
This is a beautifully illustrated book. It truly looks wonderful, bringing to life several Discworld characters that fans of the series have read about for many years. The fun thing about Where’s My Cow is that it is a book that is intertwined with Thud!, a novel of Discworld. There are many references to things that happened in Thud! in Where’s My Cow, which in turn, is part of the plot of Thud!
This is a great idea and one that I believe works very well indeed. Where’s My Cow is a book not just for small children but for children of any age, from one to ninety two as Bing Crosby once sang.
