From the legendary Terry Pratchett comes a furry tale with a whiff of intrigue.

Rats! They’re everywhere… In the breadbins, dancing across the tabletops, stealing pies from under the cook’s noses. So, what does every town need? A good piper to lure them away. That’s where Maurice, a streetwise tomcat with the perfect money-making scam, comes in. Everyone has heard of the stories about the pied piper and the town full of rodents. So, Maurice has found his very own pied piper and a plague of rats to trick gullible townsfolk into giving him lots of cash. All is going well until they arrive in the far-flung village of Bad Blintz where they meet a book obsessed girl called Malicia, who enlists their help to solve the mystery of her town …

The Amazing Maurice is the first animated feature film to be based on a Terry Pratchett novel. With more than 100 million books sold worldwide in 37 languages, Terry Pratchett was awarded an OBE in 1998 and knighted for services to literature in 2009. The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents was the 28th book published in the Discworld® series of 41 books, and the first primarily written for a younger audience, winning the Carnegie Medal in 2001.
