Description

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.

EVIL.

It’s not a game anymore. It’s a rat-eat-rat world. And that might only be the start . . .

‘Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy.’ The Guardian

‘An astonishing novel’ Financial Times

Written by the beloved and acclaimed fantasty writer, Terry Pratchett.

Publisher Review

Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy * The Guardian * Excruciatingly funny, ferociously intelligent. * Kirkus * It never ceases to amaze me the amount of... stuff one can find in a Terry Pratchett book * The Book Smugglers * Amazing Maurice has one of the most satisfying and effective endings in the series! * Reading Bug * Humour, humour and more humour, an utterly unpredictable plot, interesting rats - err, characters - and a profound denoument, this is Discworld at its best. * Speculation *
