Maurice, an amazing cat who has survived four years on the toughest streets in the whole of the Discworld, reckons that rats are dumb - clever, OK, but dumb. Maurice, however, is smart, smart enough to recognize that there's a new kind of rat around: rats who have been eating wizards' rubbish and can now talk. Smart enough to get a pretty amazing idea when he spots a stupid-looking kid playing the flute.... Now Maurice has his very own "plague of rats" and his own Pied Piper. And his money-bags are getting fuller and fuller. Until the group reaches the far-flung village of Bad Blintz.

Critic reviews

"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." ( Guardian)

Good but short.

A good listen, well read by the familiar voice of Tony Robinson; but why settle for the abridged version? Buy the unabridged copy and hear it as Terry Pratchett meant it to be heard.
