    For children Maybe, but there are some dark issues going on and dealt with from the master himself.Terry Pratchett s first Discworld story designating it as written for children followed by the wonderful Tiffany Aching sub series but I would submit this is YA territory, no warm fuzzy Disney moments here.First of all, if there was a film this reminded me of it would be the 1995 Chris Noonan film Babe In this very good movie, a young piglet confronts the contrast and distinction of animals as pets and being loved as a part of the family while also being food That ll do pig, that ll do Here, Pratchett has crafted a clever parody of the Pied Piper of Hamelin story, with of course, some Discworld twists, turns, what haves you not the Brothers Grimm but rather the Sisters Grimm Channeling Orwell in Animal Farm and Daniel Keyes Flowers for Algernon, Pratchett has again returned to the ubiquitous phenomena of animals becoming sentient after living and eating in and around Unseen University Seems the residual magic boosts the critter s intelligence and provides a fecundity of fictional MAGIC for all us Discworld aficionados out here Maurice the cat and his band of smart RATS have teamed up with Keith the teenage piper to swindle some Uberwald villages.As in all of Pratchett s books, though, there is a lot going on besides talking rats and some dubiou...

    Maurice, a talking cat, leads a group of talking mice and a stupid looking kid into a town called Bad Blintz looking for one last score with their pied piper scam Only Bad Blintz has troubles of its ownTerry Pratchett really knows how to write a kids book I would have devoured this thing when I was a lad Maurice and the rats are good characters, as is Keith, the aforementioned stupid looking kid The origin of Maurice and the rats intelligence was fairly well done Hell, it s a fantasy story How much explanation do you need Pratchett took the classic story of the pied piper and Discworld ed it up with questions of philosophy, destiny, and leadership And rat kings.Why only a three The rat king bit felt tacked on at the last minute, although I enjoy me a good rat king While the humor was good, I didn t feel it was as good as the adult Discworld novels, subtle sex jokes excluded Being a Discworld novel, things didn t quite end up all hunky dory at the end but it was still a...

    Pratchett at his best.This is his first YA Discworld book although I think that label is put for marketing purposes This is one of his darker works and like all good Discworld book there is so much going on beneath the surface Behind there is story of clash of generations, finding one identity, spirituality and religion and Pratchett s realistic or pessimistic if you are an optimist view of humanity and much and his signiture cynical humor 5 sta...

    Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma which reading list to follow it up with Variety is the spice of life, so I ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously This book falls into my FINISHING THE SERIES list.I loves me a good series But I m terrible for starting a new series before finishing my last so this reading list is all about trying to close out those series I ve got on the go.I remember being given a copy of Reaper Man when I was a wee boy When Death took on the prototype mechanical harvester, my first major author crush began and it s never let up.In my teenage years I re read my favourite Discworld books so many times that their spines cracked and pages fell out Sir Terry will always be an idol, an icon and a source of inspiration.But somehow this one passed me by I think it s because it s a stand alone within the Discworld universe, and those have never been my favourites Also, I m not yet sold on the young adult Discworld books Before The Amazing Maurice I d only read The Wee Free Men and I wasn t convinced, so I felt little urgency to grab a copy.This is a good book It s a great concept talking cat, rats and sidekick human boy scamming villages...

    IF like me you ve always been impatient with the Rincewind heavy volumes of Sir Terry s oeuvre, you re in luck Civilization begins with the tiniest steps Maurice is blessedly short on fart jokes and long on Pratchett s brand of homespun philosophical irony Maurice is a madly inventive retelling of The Pied Piper, featuring ragged eared, fast talking tomcat Maurice as the brains of the outfit His cronies the rats can talk too, thanks to their hazardous magical waste diet amid the trash heaps behind...

    Another author I was slow in finding, Pratchett has a wicked and beautifully twisted sense of humor I would call this book a recrafting of the Pied Piper story, but that really doesn t even begin to describe it All the characters, human or otherwise...
