A beautiful hardback edition of Terry Pratchett’s Carnegie Medal-winning tale of an unusually smart alley cat and his troupe of tap-dancing, trap-thwarting rats!
Seeking their fortune in Bad Blintz our heroes must negotiate the sewers beneath where they soon discover the dastardly deeds of the local rat-catchers, and a rat king lurking in the depths…
“Listen, Peaches, trickery is what humans are all about,” said the voice of Maurice. “They’re so keen on tricking one another all the time that they elect governments to do it for them.”
― The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents
Terry Pratchett’s twenty-eighth Discworld book is an unapologetically unpatronising story for children and grownups of all ages! Like the sewers of Bad Blintz, it’s dark, twisted and full of rats!
With intelligence evolved by magical accident, our cast of characters includes Maurice, Darktan, Hamnock, Dangerous Beans, Sardines and Peaches who, along with their stupid-looking human accomplice Keith face challenges to their incredible intellect in the shape of ratcatchers, a Rat King, and a piper with ‘real’ magic up his sleeve. Can they they bring the town of Bad Blintz, and themselves, out of the darkness?
The Discworld Collector’s Library is a stunning hardback collection of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, with cover artwork by Joe McLaren.
