The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents

(Discworld Novel 28)

Discworld Novels

(2)

IT’S A RAT-EAT-RAT WORLD . . .

Every town on Discworld knows the stories about rats and pipers, and Maurice – a streetwise tomcat – leads a band of educated ratty friends (and a stupid kid) on a nice little earner. Piper plus rats equals lots and lots of money.

Until they run across someone playing a different tune.

Now he and his rats must learn a new concept: evil . . .

Rezension
"An enticing and occasionally gory introduction to the master of flat earth . . . proves that the Pied Piper of Hamelin was a front for an insider-dealing scam . . . alongside the gags and pest-control politics, there are enough complex ideas about nature, nurture and understanding to satisfy a wide audience"

Zitat
"An astonishing novel ... I marvelled at the ferociousness of the humour, and the willingness to go into dark places ... Were Terry not demonstrably a master craftsman already, The Amazing Maurice might be considered his masterpiece" Financial Times "One of Terry Pratchett's funniest creations of recent years ... It all adds up to a wonderful book - hilarious, brilliantly constructed and, especially towards its conclusion, shot through with an edginess to balance the laughs" SFX "Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated" Guardian "An enticing and occasionally gory introduction to the master of flat earth ... proves that the Pied Piper of Hamelin was a front for an insider-dealing scam ... alongside the gags and pest-control politics, there are enough complex ideas about nature, nurture and understanding to satisfy a wide audience" Observer "The humour is sophisticated and demands that the reader keep up to speed. A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages" Daily Telegraph

What would happen if rats and a certain cat continually eat magically-infused orts from the Unseen University? Simple: they learn to talk. And if the cat refuses to eat anything that can speak, which seems to be a rather nasty habit among rats these days, it's time for Maurice... What would happen if rats and a certain cat continually eat magically-infused orts from the Unseen University? Simple: they learn to talk. And if the cat refuses to eat anything that can speak, which seems to be a rather nasty habit among rats these days, it's time for Maurice and the rats to work together. Along with a slow-witted but kind-hearted rat piper they devise an elaborate plan to trick humans into paying the piper to get rid of one alleged rat infestation after the other, until they encounter three huge problems at once: another phoney rat piper, crooked rat hunters, and an actual rat infestation.
