"This wasn’t what I had expected. I read about this picture book in Terry Pratchett’s book Thud. In it, Sam Vimes of the City Watch must be home at 6:00 PM at the latest in order to read the book, Where’s My Cow, to his year old son, Young Sam. I thought this would be that book, but is both is and isn’t. It’s a book about the elder Sam reading it to the younger one. As he reads the it, picture book fills the background and shows the father and son in the foreground. These foreground images are the best in the book as they highlight the special connection between these two. Melvin Grant’s art work is what makes the book work." said.

" I liked it. Even though the illustrations of Sam Vimes aren't how I picture him in my head, I thought it was still really cute. " said.

" Where’s My Cow? By Terry Pratchett – interesting story that turns into another story. Tried to see how it would fit within Discworld but perhaps I haven’t read enough of those books… " said.

" Such a fun, kid introduction to Discworld, full of city noises. " said.

" Felt like I had to read this after "Thud!". It was funny, although the illustrations threw me since they're nothing like my images of Vimes and family. I like how it's about the story and then turns into the story. Cute. " said.

" In Terry Pratchett's novel "Thud!", Commander Sam Vimes, of the City Watch. makes a point of getting home at 6:00 each evening to read the book "Where's My Cow?" to his one-year-old son, Sam, Jr. This is a children's picture book about Commander Vimes reading this selfsame book to his son. It's amusing. " said.

" Although it took me only five minutes to read this book, it was a very interesting and entertaining five minutes. The illustrations are well done and are just as entertaining as the text, which follows Pratchett' usual Discworld style and skill. This can be enjoyed by children and Discworld fans alike. " said.

" I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book. I think you have to read Terry Pratchett's novels with the nightwatch characters in them to really enjoy this book (that series begins with "Guards! Guards!" one of my favorite group of books that Pratchett has written). This book also makes an appearance in his Young Adult novel "Wintersmith", the third book about a young witch named Tiffany Aching, another great group of books. " said.
