The World of Poo
The World of Poo | Terry Pratchett
5 posts | 8 read | 6 to read
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. From Snuff: 'Vimes' prompt arrival got a nod of approval from Sybil, who gingerly handed him a new book to read to Young Sam. Vimes looked at the cover. The title was The World of Poo. When his wife was out of eyeshot he carefully leafed through it. Well, okay, you had to accept that the world had moved on and these days fairy stories were probably not going to be about twinkly little things with wings. As he turned page after page, it dawned on him that whoever had written this book, they certainly knew what would make kids like Young Sam laugh until they were nearly sick. The bit about sailing down the river almost made him smile. But interspersed with the scatology was actually quite interesting stuff about septic tanks and dunnakin divers and gongfermors and how dog muck helped make the very best leather, and other things that you never thought you would need to know, but once heard somehow lodged in your mind.'

Geoffrey has to go stay with his grandmama in Ankh-Morpork. While he's there he decides to start a collection of as many unique poos as he can find. I chuckled often.

My book haul from yesterday. Nick Offerman, Roman and Egyptian intrigue, a graphic novel I've wanted forever, and The World of Poo! 💩 I love you Terry Pratchett. My Discworld library just got better. Unseen are my final #scififantasyswap #SFFS items. What could they be? I'll never tell...😀

Gezemice Terry Pratchett! 👍😊 2mo

I'm headed into my last 3 hours of reading for #24in48! I can't believe I'm in my last library book I took out for the #readathon! I think I'll finish up with some Harry Potter once I'm done with this silly fun Terry Pratchett.

I know there's no way I'll get to all of these during @24in48 , but I'm going to do my best! I'm so excited, I actually took a day off from work to read! I feel scandalous! Oh I also have audiobooks for drive time and exercise time!

kdwinchester Woohoo!! Great stack! 3y
