Rity ensuesThe World of Poo started out as a book Sam Vimes was reading his son in Snuff Smelling an opportunity Old Pratch sueezed out this nugget before his final Vimes was reading his son in Snuff Smelling an opportunity Old Pratch sueezed out this nugget before his final When it opped up on Netgalley I had to inch itThe World of Poo is the tale of one young man s oo obsession leading to him visiting various Ankh Morpork locales and collecting fragrant specimens for his oo museum As well as being amusing The World of Poo contains many interesting Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church poo facts the straight shit on feces as it wereIn addition to real lifeoo Geoffrey also collects specimens from gargoyles dragons and various other creatures I think it would be a lot of
to read kids or any adult you know with a fixation on fecesIn conclusion The World of Poo is not the slightest bit crappy Four out of five stars A scatological A (kinda) Country Christmas pearl from Ankh Morpork stemming from Young Sam Vimes infatuation with all things faecal ref Snuff Therotagonist a young boy urbanned out to his granny duri A story about a young boy with an interest in oo As an accompaniment to Snuff it s uite a fun little book but I m not uite sure who it s written for with both the young and the old being short changed in an attempt to cover all the bases I ersonally found it too basic actually hoping for detail into the world of oo we find out it s used in tanning but not how I want to knowGenerally it s amusing rather than funny though kids should enjoy it The footnotes we all love are resent and correct and usually the funniest National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 parts and it s nice to spend some time exploring Ankh Morpork another reviewer mentioned reading it with the map side by side and that sounds like a greatgeeky idea Simplicity aside as a big Discworld fan it sretty much essential The design of the book really does appeal a fantastic small hardback with cloth bound feel marbled end ages and lovely inked illustrations throughout evoking books of old WonderfulProbably most amusing was chatting with the lady in the book shop who said to me oh I had a flick through that and it looks fun have you seen the names of some of the other titles She s written so many but I ve not heard of her before Ha ha I didn t have the heart to tell herFun for the fans and those with kids Now I need to go and find a book about the use of oo in industry In Snuff Young Sam Vines had moved on from Where s My Cow and his new favourite book was The World of Poo Because Sir Terry Pratchett his awesome once again he has brought Sam s fictional book to life in a charming story all about Why Is It Always About You?: The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism pooI m not sure thelot really matters Geoffrey is staying with his Grandmother in Ankh Morpork and he starts up a Gods and fighting men: the story of the Tuatha de Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland, arranged and put into English by Lady Gregory poo museum in the garden shed after he s told that beingooed on by a bird is good luck The story follows his adventures round the city as he collects different types of Charming the Firefighter poo and even visits Sir Harry King master of all thingsooI can see this being a huge hit with small children even if arents might want to deter oo collecting as a hobby Geoffrey is encouraged to wash his hands a lot so there is a Everyone Loves Clowns and Other Tales positive message in there too The line drawings by Peter Dennis are charming and add a little extra to the story I especially liked the ones illustrating his trip to the zoo And in true Pratchett style there arelenty of footnotes to keep the adults entertained though The Elements of Computing Systems: Building a Modern Computer from First Principles personally I thought the whole thing was amusingThere s a lot of moaning on about the formatting on the Kindle edition I can see how it might have been difficult with the illustrations and footnotes but there s a bit of me that thinks this book deserves to by ahysical thing The hardback has a lovely feel to it and at the very least it s an interesting conversation oint for visitors to your home.
