Or you could look at Colin Smythe's website where all the books are listed along with ISBN numbers for the various versions. :)

Both are very good sources of the information.

The whole thing about suitablity for age is a bit of a difficult one with Terry's books. All of his books can be and are read by people of all ages. Even the so-called adult ones are read by children.

I would say that some are written with children in mind - but he doesn't write down to them and some of the so-called childre's books have quite important consepts in them.

I would say (if I was pushed) that the Johnny Maxwell Trology, The Bromeliad Trilogy, The Carpet People and possibly Amazing Maurice and the Tiffany series could be classed as less adult and more chilren's/young adults.

Hope that helps :)

I wouldn't say that Terry Pratchett has written any children's books but the ones that Tony listed are aimed more towards young adults/teenagers (Although I enjoyed all of them).

Where's my cow may be considered a children's book but I'm not sure as I've never seen it.

All others (Discworld, Good Omens, Nation, The Unadulterated Cat, Dark Side of the Sun & Strata) are not aimed at any specific age group.

I'd say Where's My Cow was a parody of a children's book for very small children. It causes libraries a real headache when it comes to classifying it. :wink:
