About the book

*The incredible Carnegie-winning adventure, now in a brand-new gift edition, part of the Discworld Hardback Library.*

'An astonishing novel' Financial Times

Maurice, a streetwise tomcat, has the perfect money-making scam. Everyone knows the stories about rats and pipers, and Maurice has a stupid-looking kid with a pipe, and his very own plague of rats - strangely educated rats . . .

But in Bad Blintz, the little con suddenly goes down the drain. For someone there is playing a different tune and now the rats must learn a new word.


It's not a game any more. It's a rat-eat-rat world. And that might only be the start . . .
