    From Snuff: "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 whomever 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.

    Jacobus says: "Its about Pooh without an h, but with humor"

    Story
    Would you listen to The World of Poo again? Why?

    This is a book I would listen to again and recommend to parents. Many interesting facts are woven into the story of the young boy and easily understood by all ages.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have wanted to read this book because it was written by my favourite author, and also because I wanted to see how he presented the material. It is mentioned in "Snuff".


    Which character – as performed by Helen Atkinson-Wood – was your favorite?

    I liked the Grandmother's attitude. Though proper, she had an understanding of what fascinates young boys.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
