The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents


PRATCHETT, Terry

Level 1

ADVENTURE | FANTASY | HUMOUR

The book is part of the Discworld series - but the reader doesn't need to know about that universe, since this is basically a clever, witty re-hash of The Pied Piper of Hamelin with lots of in-jokes and allusions which make it fun for adult readers, too. A good introduction to Pratchett's world.
