The Amazing Maurice and his educated rodents by Terry Pratchett

Synopsis

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 . . .

My Thoughts

This was the first Discworld book for younger readers, but will appeal to all Pratchett fans regardless of their ages, this is a stand alone Discworld story and does not feature and of the regular characters.

Pratchett’s writing is always witty and entertaining, and this retelling of the Pied Piper of Hamlin is as good as any of the ‘adult’ Discworld novels, a lovely ending which shows us what can be achieved if we all stopped fighting over our differences and worked together.

I gave this 4 out of 5* on Goodreads
