This is a book about reading a book,
which turns into a different book.
But it all ends happily!
A companion volume to Thud! describes how Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch returns home each night to read Where's My Cow? to his little boy and how, concerned about the book's relevancy to his young son, begins to adapt the book into a dark tale that will be more useful to a youngster growing up in the big city.

SummaryAdd a Summary
"The book is written as a children's picture book and tells the story of Sam Vimes reading the picture book Where's My Cow? to Young Sam. The book describes the search for a cow, in which various animals that are not cows are identified by the noise they make.
Sam eventually decides that this is a daft way to look for a cow, and that Young Sam should, in any case, be getting taught about Ankh-Morpork rather than animals he will only see on a plate. He therefore attempts to rework the story into what he calls the 'Vimes street version', about a search for "daddy" through the city, encountering such characters as Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler, Foul Ole Ron, and the Patrician."
