Description

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.

EVIL.

It’s not a game anymore. It’s a rat-eat-rat world. And that might only be the start . . .

‘Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy.’ The Guardian

‘An astonishing novel’
Financial Times

Written by the beloved and acclaimed fantasty writer, Terry Pratchett.
