Terry Pratchett, Stephen Briggs. An engaging classroom playscript. Maurice is no ordinary cat. He's amazing. and he has an amazing scam going. And all he needs to pull it off is an army of intelligent rats and one stupid-looking kid. But when his gang enter Bad Blintz, the town they have decided to con next, they soon realize that all is not as it should be - and decide to investigate.

Rats! They're everywhere: in the breadbins, dancing across tabletops, stealing pies from under the cooks' noses. So what does every town need? A good Piper to lure them away. That's where Maurice comes in. But he's only a cat - albeit one that talks - so although he has the ideas, he needs rats and someone to play the pipe. Who better than the kid to play the pipe? And Dangerous Beans and Peaches. And Hamnpork (who doesn't really like what's been happening since The Change: all a rat leader needs is to be big and stroppy - thinking is just not his thing). Then they arrive in Bad Blintz which is suffering a plague of rats and find there are NO other rats anywhere (though the two resident rat-catchers seem to have plenty of tails to show, at 50 pence each). Someone else has ideas, and Maurice is not pleased...

I've been reading Pratchett for years and I still can't get enough. Since his death, I've been filling in my library's gaps with the few books of his that I had somehow missed. This story isn't great, but it is very good. I suppose you could call it a stand-alone story within the Discworld novels. There's the characteristic irreverence and humor, along with some adventure and misadventure, culminating in a satisfactory moral as everything ties up somewhat neatly in a bow. If you've never read a Pratchett book. This would be a good introduction. If you have, then it's a good read to add to your list.

Terry Pratchett is a great author to introduce to thoughtful young people. There was a lame factor "pied piper" concept to get over. The book very quickly gets philosophically deep as it explores morality and death, leadership and bravery and what it means to be clever. The author is one of those people who is human in a good way. The story vibes with my own morals and values making the process of sharing them with my son entertaining and meaningful. The characters are amazing.

Terry Pratchett remains one of my all time favorite authors, but I agree with Patrick Rothfuss that this is not one of his best books. It is indeed funny, scary, and well written, like all Pratchett books, but like most Pratchett books, it goes on a tad too long and could have used some editing. They also say it is his first Discworld book, but I'm not sure why--unless they're saying it for marketing reasons--for it is unlike the other books in that series. All this aside, I would highly recommend it.

I don't remember not giving one of the Discworld series books less than five stars. It's just such a wonderful world.

But while it's clear that this book is part of that world, I found myself often disconnected from it. I didn't really feel like I was on the Discworld. I thought that maybe the writing style was different because of U.S. copy editors. The afterward, though, explained that this was Pratchett's first "children's book." Okay. Maybe that explains the different style.

Overall, it was a very good story. There was just something deeply different about it that was nagging at my subconscious the whole time I was reading, though.

Terry Prachett, I heart you and your takes on famous tales. This one in the Discworld series is a real stand-aloner. Prachett takes on the "Tale of the Pied Piper" with the aplomb you'd expect, but he tackles this with a grace I found surprisingly appetizing. You don't need to read a single other Discworld novel to enjoy this one, though it does appear to take place in the same mulit-verse as his other works.

This is a very grown-up story, though it was awarded the Carnegie Award for Children's Literature in 2001. This award is a British medal not at all equivalent to our Caldecott; its other winners include Neil Gamon, so you know they love a ^[email protected])-up story with gruesome grown-up bits to it. The Amazing Maurice....has just that: %[email protected]&)-up bits that are VERY grown up. In this version of the famous tale, the rats have eaten from the Wizards' trash heap. Because they've ingested magical substances, they've become intelligent (a la Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM and Flowers for Algernon). And as they became intelligent on a trash heap, they learned to read there. So they took amusing names from food labels like "Hamnpork" and "Peaches" and "Dangerous Beans". Then enters the Maurice of the title, a common stupid alley cat who eats one of the rats (BEFORE the cat became intelligent), thereby ingesting the magical substances second hand and then becoming enchanted, too. (He always asks his food if it can talk before he eats it thereafter).

What results is an amalgam of Puss In Boots and other tales, but only as Prachett could imagine them. Maurice is still very much a cat, so he's cruel and shiftless and selfish by nature. The rats are developing a sense of morality he doesn't seem capable of grasping. And the most cruel of all creatures, man, is revealed to be the least intelligent of all. This just makes me love Prachett even more, if that's possible.

This book is set in Discworld, but the only major Discworld characters who make an appearance are Death and the Death of Rats. So, if someone has not read any of the Discworld series, they could still enjoy this book immensely.
It's a fantasy about some rats and a cat who become intelligent enough to talk following consuming some garbage from Unseen University. They travel around with a boy who plays a pipe, bringing a "plague of rats" from town to town, then getting rid of said plague for a low, low price. The rats become uneasy about the fraudulent nature of their business, and the cat (who acts as manager) promises that the next town will be the last. What they find in the next town is different from anything in their experience, and requires all their intelligence to survive.
This would be a good read for anyone 10 and up. Perhaps a really savvy 8-year-old could deal with it if he/she has an intelligent cat to explain the difficult bits.
