The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents

A Discworld Novel. Winner of the Carnegie Medal 2001

(2)
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...

Zitat
"High comedy with unforgettable animal characters. The lightness of Terry Pratchett's wit (especially his word games) makes it easy to underestimate the more serious points of this story" -- Julia Eccleshare Guardian "Alongside the gags and pest-control politics, there are enough complex ideas about nature, nurture and understanding to satisfy a wide audience" Observer "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 "Excruciatingly funny, ferociously intelligent" Kirkus Reviews "The humour is sophisticated and demands that the reader keep up to speed. A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages" -- Fiona Lafferty 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 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.
