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.

    " This volume contains the two books Winnie-the-Pooh and its sequel The House at Pooh Corner for a grand total of twenty Pooh stories. This volume also includes two short biographies of both the author A.A. Milne and the illustrator Ernest H. Shepard. I think the first book is the stronger of the two, but there are some really delightful stories in the second book as well. All in all, this is a really cozy and delightful book to share with a child who enjoys old fashioned, whimsical stories. "

    " What can I say? The complete tales of A Bear with Very Little Brain and a Very Big Heart in one volume with the original E.H. Shepard illustrations? Absolutely lovely. We can learn so much from Pooh about the purity of love and friendship, and we can learn so much about A.A. Milne from the stories and from his adorable dedications of each book to his wife. A great set of stories to contemplate from childhood to maturity, and the poems are wonderful to read out loud. Even if there are no children around. "

    " This was a read a-loud for my son making his transition to bf-ing down for a nap to reading to settle into an afternoon nap. "
