Book Review: The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett


If there was ever a book I could not see myself enjoying, it would be one about cats and rats. However, insert Terry Pratchett into the equation, and what results is a great book about Maurice (the cat) and his educated rodents. Talking cats and rats invade a town to scam them, along with a piper, but instead end up taking on a couple of crooks who have been conning the town and creating monster rats. It’s a crazy scenario, but in true Pratchett fashion, mocks our own modern world, pointing out in his own subversive manner, lessons about getting along and doing what’s right. I don’t think Pratchett is capable of writing a bad, or even average, novel. Every one is well worth reading. Immediately and without delay.

    I’ve just read that this book is now available as a primary school musical. What a great idea and thanks to Terry Pratchett for writing such a fine book. I love all of the characters but my favourite has to be dangerous beans.
