The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The book that inspired the big-hit new film

The audiobook of The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents is read by Ariyon Bakare (Good Omens; His Dark Materials). BAFTA and Golden Globe award-winning actor Bill Nighy (Love Actually; Pirates of the Caribbean; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) reads the footnotes, and Peter Serafinowicz (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace; Shaun of the Dead) stars as the voice of Death. Featuring a new theme tune composed by James Hannigan.


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.


The rules have changed. And this story is no longer dancing to the piper's tune…

With a new introduction written and read by Rob Wilkins.

The Discworld novels can be enjoyed in any order, but The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents is a standalone novel.

The first book in the Discworld series—The Colour of Magic—was published in 1983. Some elements of the Discworld universe may reflect this.
