Maurice, a streetwise tomcat, has the perfect money-making scam. Everyone knows the stories about rats and pipers, and Maurice has a stupid-looking kid with a pipe, and his very own plague of rats - strangely educated rats . . .
But in Bad Blintz, the little con suddenly goes down the drain. For someone there is playing a different tune and now the rats must learn a new word.
It's not a game any more. It's a rat-eat-rat world. And that might only be the start . . .

Excruciatingly funny, ferociously intelligent.
It never ceases to amaze me the amount of... stuff one can find in a Terry Pratchett book
Amazing Maurice has one of the most satisfying and effective endings in the series!
Humour, humour and more humour, an utterly unpredictable plot, interesting rats - err, characters - and a profound denoument, this is Discworld at its best.
