Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents The amazing Maurice is a talking cat, and the educated rodents are a group of talking rodents. Maurice, the rodents, and a kid named Keith are working together to scam the towns of the Discworld (the fictional world of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series).   By the time The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents was first published, in , Discworld was beginning to be eclipsed by the Harry Potter series. JK Rowling’s fourth book was a genuine pop-culture phenomenon, effectively kickstarting the modern trend of adults dabbling in YA fiction (and why shouldn’t they?).

  Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents. Winner Description: by Terry Pratchett. HarperCollins, $ All those stories about plagues and rats and magic pipers make great advance publicity for Maurice, the talking cat, and his rat acquaintances (some more talkative than others), when they roll into town with their piper to scam yet. Every town on Discworld knows the stories about rats and pipers, and Maurice – a streetwise tomcat – leads a band of educated ratty friends (and a stupid kid) on a nice little earner. Piper plus rats equals lots and lots of money. Until they run across someone playing a different tune. Now he and his rats must learn a new concept: evil.
