It's not a game any more . . . Every town on Discworld knows the stories about rats and pipers, and Maurice - a streetwise tomcat - leads a band of educated ratty friends (and a stupid kid) on a nice little earner. Piper plus rats equals lots and lots of money. Until they run across someone playing a different tune. Now he and his rats must learn a new concept: evil . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
"High comedy with unforgettable animal characters. The lightness of Terry Pratchett's wit (especially his word games) makes it easy to underestimate the more serious points of this story" -- Julia Eccleshare * Guardian *
"Alongside the gags and pest-control politics, there are enough complex ideas about nature, nurture and understanding to satisfy a wide audience" * Observer *
"One of Terry Pratchett's funniest creations of recent years. . . . It all adds up to a wonderful book - hilarious, brilliantly constructed and, especially towards its conclusion, shot through with an edginess to balance the laughs" * SFX *
"Excruciatingly funny, ferociously intelligent" * Kirkus Reviews *
"The humour is sophisticated and demands that the reader keep up to speed. A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages" -- Fiona Lafferty * Daily Telegraph *
