    1. For children?Maybe, but there are some dark issues going on and dealt with from the master himself.Terry Pratchett’s first Discworld “story” designating it as written for children (followed by the wonderful Tiffany Aching sub-series) but I would submit this is YA territory, no warm fuzzy Disney moments here.First of all, if there was a film this reminded me of it would be the 1995 Chris Noonan film Babe. In this very good movie, a young piglet confronts the contrast and distinction of anim [...]

    2. Maurice, a talking cat, leads a group of talking mice and a stupid-looking kid into a town called Bad Blintz looking for one last score with their pied piper scam. Only Bad Blintz has troubles of its ownTerry Pratchett really knows how to write a kids book. I would have devoured this thing when I was a lad. Maurice and the rats are good characters, as is Keith, the aforementioned stupid-looking kid. The origin of Maurice and the rats' intelligence was fairly well done. Hell, it's a fantasy story [...]

    3. Pratchett at his best.This is his first YA Discworld book although I think that label is put more for marketing purposes. This is one of his darker works and like all good Discworld book there is so much going on beneath the surface. Behind there is story of clash of generations, finding one identity, spirituality and religion and Pratchett's realistic (or pessimistic if you are an optimist ) view of humanity and much more and his signiture cynical humor . 5 stars aren't enoug, that is why we ha [...]

    4. Standardno dobar Pračet (ovo zapravo mogu da napišem za svaku njegovu knjigu, osim za one s Rinsvindom, koje zbog nečeg ne podnosim) koji je iz nepoznatih razloga marketinški plasiran kao dečja knjiga. Nekad imam utisak da je za marketinško plasiranje nečega kao dečjeg dovoljno da nema eksplicitnog seksa i ružnih reči.Mala beleška: mnogo mi se sviđa kako aktuelna prevoditeljka Pračeta, Nevena Andrić, rešava probleme lokalno obojenog kolokvijalnog govora. Nisu sva rešenja idealna [...]

    5. Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma: which reading list to follow it up with? Variety is the spice of life, so I’ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously. This book falls into my FINISHING THE SERIES! list.I loves me a good series! But I'm terrible for starting a new series before finishing my last - so this reading list is all about trying to close out those series I've got on the go.I remember being given a copy of Reaper Man whe [...]

    6. Maurice watched them argue again. Humans, eh? Think they're lords of creation. Not like us cats. We know we are. Ever see a cat feed a human? Case proven.Maurice and his savvy, talking rodents arrive in town, ready once again to pull the old "Pied Piper" scheme. They scare the bejeezus out of the townsfolk, nibble on the comestibles and widdle everywhere. The citizens waste no time hiring Keith to play his magic flute, rats follow him out of the village, everybody splits the money and VOILA! - i [...]

    7. Υπέροχο βιβλίο από έναν ευφάνταστο παραμυθά! Καταιγιστική περιπέτεια εμπνευσμένη από το Μαγικό Αυλό, με πολλούς ποντικούς που κατευθύνει ένας ραδιούργος γάτος (everybody wants to be a cat παραραμ!!! καλά, μπορεί να θέλει να γίνει και ένα εξελιγμένο τρωκτικό βέβαια)Έχει και ηθικό μήνυμ [...]

    8. What was up with that bullshit message of Ratatouille? (I hope I'm spelling that correctly. I'm gonna look so dumb! In my defense, I've always been the pickiest of eaters.) That whole "Don't steal from humans!" thing. They were rats! What did they care if humans stuck flags and paper umbrellas in every little thing? They shouldn't. The rat had as much right to saffron as stupid Lugini did.The rodents in Terry Prachett's Maurice and his Educated Rodents are - D'oh! Sorry, Maurice! The AMAZING Mau [...]

    9. Talk to the paw, because the whiskers aren't listening. Overdrive has informed me that I listened to the entirety of this. I say, it's debatable.Here's why Pratchett is a miss with me. I want to experience the story as a character. This requires a deep point of view. But Pratchett always does this (to the tune of Row Your Boat):Tell, tell, tell, the tale,tell the fricking tale.If you want to be shown,you can go to Hale.Yes, one minute you are a star whistling through the cosmos, the next, a cat [...]

    10. This is Terry Pratchett's first YA Discworld novel and as to be expected it is a lot of fun.It's based on the Pied Piper story with Maurice the talking cat, a band of talking rats (they all ate something strange at the dump) and a stupid looking kid who plays the flute. They go from village to village scamming the villagers into paying for the piper to rid the town of rats who are running amok, widdling on the cheese and swimming in the cream. The rats are very cute with names they've taking fro [...]

    11. Another author I was slow in finding, Pratchett has a wicked and beautifully twisted sense of humor. I would call this book a recrafting of the Pied Piper story, but that really doesn't even begin to describe it. All the characters, human or otherwise, are wonderfully drawn, and the story is well worth your time. Sheesh, this guy is prolific, too. I need to get back to work now!

    12. Well, I have definitely learned a lot about rats. I have mixed feelings about this book. Terry Pratchett is usually SO GOOD at mixing light-hearted silliness with a more macabre subject matter, but this time something felt a little… off. The rats are great at first, a nice blend of ratty grossness and the angst that comes with sudden enlightenment… or puberty. The rat characters are well-developed and as authentic as a bunch of talking rats can be. Maurice the cat is also a wonderful charact [...]

    13. Re-Read this recently while traveling. It's interesting to see Pratchett's first run at writing something officially YA. It's a good read. Smart. Funny. And pleasantly stand-alone. It's easy to see why he won the Carnegie award for it. But in my opinion, it doesn't hold a candle to his later YA books that feature Tiffany Aching: Wee Free Men, Hat Full of Sky, etc. The Wee Free Menpat

    14. The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents is the first young adult Discworld book. It was a short book, and a cute story, but I thought it was pretty substantial in terms of both plot and messages. The plot was certainly more substantial than many of his adult Discworld books. I didn’t think there was quite as much humor, but it had its funny moments.The basic premise is that some of the rats in Ankh-Morpork, after eating magical rubbish dumped by the residents of the Unseen University, hav [...]

    15. 12/9/08 first read: I find it amazing how many important concepts Terry Pratchett manages to pack into this little 278 page book!7/22/13: Reread. Love the way the rats develop their civilization: thinking, writing, teaching, learning, religion, protecting their future, and that of those weaker than themselves. Even hints of suffrage for females. Best of all is Darktan (and others) learning the responsibilities of leadership. As always with Pratchett, simple and fun--but deep down so very very wi [...]

    16. This is one of my younger sister's favorite books of all time, but sadly I did not love it as much as she does. It just wasn't my type of book and I did not find it amazing, more like very average. (But not completely terrible).My biggest problem was that I was bored a lot. I did like Maurice and the rats, but I hated Malicia. SHE WAS SO ANNOYING. Too bad she didn't die or something. I wanted to strangle her. I think that certain people will like/love this book but it was not for me and I wasn't [...]

    17. Всичко започва от по-далеч. От това как едни плъхове започнали да Мислят. И осъзнали, че трябва да има правила (нещо, което дори на нас, хората, често ни убягва. Например простичкото правило „Не пикай, където се храниш“. Доста човеци изглежда смятат, че са над тия неща). Улични [...]

    18. A children's take on Discworld - but while that may mean it's simpler, it doesn't mean it's not just as dark. Not ideal for very young children, those prone to nightmares, or those who don't like ratsFor adult fans, it's a pleasant return to some elements of Pratchett's earlier writing (particularly the Bromeliad), with all the polish and sophistication of his later work. Doesn't read as any more child-oriented than many of his early Discworld novels, like Equal Rites or Mort - less sly sexual i [...]

    19. This is a 'young adult' novel? I think Terry must have gotten fed up with the run-of-the-mill children's books and decided to do a sort of parody of them, one where the characters constantly make references to the fact that real life is not like 'Mr. Bunnsy Has an Adventure'.This is definitely a novel that teens can digest, but there are some parts that are even more grim and depressing than many of Pratchett's 'adult' books. I am reading the Discworld series in order of publication, and I was d [...]

    20. The Amazing Pratchett and His Gleeful Renditions"Humans, eh? Think they're lords of creation. Not like us cats. We know we are. Ever see a cat feed a human? Case proven.""'If you don't turn your life into a story, you just become a part of someone else's story.' 'And what if your story doesn't work?' 'You keep changing it until you find one that does.'"

    21. I feared once again that this would be another Pratchett book I'll have to give less than 5 stars. Alas, I was wrong and boy, am I glad. The first 2/5 was a little boring, or maybe it was so because I had to read it in really small chunks because I was travelling a lot over the past three days. But then, it got great. It got deep, complicated, with an unexpected plot twist, and once again Sir Terry taught us that both the greatest sin and beauty of man is humanity. Because, as usual, it was huma [...]

    22. Ok so I have a confession to make which is a little embarrassing really. My being 34 years of age, and this is the first Terry Pratchett book I have read. There is said it. Phew, even if I did have to borrow it.I did like this book, a story of Maurice, a talking cat, and lots of rats, some good rats and some not so good rats. This is well written, with some good characters, but I did have trouble deciding when the book was set. I think that was a brilliant introductory book, and does make me wan [...]

    23. I recently reread this book and by "reread" I mean I listened to the audiobook, which is usually what I mean when I say reread (As a side note, Stephen Briggs is a great reader and I was pleasantly surprised to find that he used the same voice for Dark Tan as he does for Sam Vimes). I remember that the first time I read it, I didn't really like it that much, partly because it wasn't about Tiffany Aching and mostly because I was taken aback by the tone of the story. The Amazing Maurice is easily [...]

    24. Been looking forward to this one, the first YA Discworld novel, and probably the best despite not offering the publisher's the chance to print money by turning in to a standalone YA series - that would come later of course. By riffing on the Pied Piper legend/fairy tale Pratchett is playing it safe, using the readers prior knowledge to introduce his own sense of playful storytelling and humour, as well as allowing himself to softly broach his pet subjects of fate vs free will, self-determination [...]

    25. Che dire, sono rimasta molto sorpresa. E' un libro godibilissimo, a tratti molto profondo, a tratti particolarmente ironico. Un libro in cui i Topi sono più umani degli Umani, in cui l'autore propone riflessioni profonde mascherate da racconto per bambini. Certo, i momenti divertenti non mancano, ma sono rimasta colpita soprattutto da questi pensieri che, attraverso la bocca di Fagiolino, Pesche, Abbronzante, Sardine, e tutti i Mutanti, raggiungono chi legge e rimangono nella testa, a far arrov [...]

    26. 2003 Dec 282006 Apr 092009 Jul 192011 June 27Magically smart cat and rats and a reasonably clever boy. Delightful.***Point to keep in mind for anyone else choosing to read this aloud: the way Pratchett writes, it's not a case of "climax and done." There is a lot going on and it takes a long while to resolve all the different threads. Maurice was a big hit, as was Malicia, and Sardines, the tap-dancing rat.***2016 July 26a little sad, and some seriously creepyrsonal copy

    27. The piped piper comes to a town in Uberwald, but finds that he’s late to the show that features cats, rats, and stupid-looking kids talking to one another. The twenty-eighth and first young adult entry of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents finds the residents—new and old, human and nonhuman—town of Bad Blintz figuring out the fine line between real life and a story. The aim to bring the same Pratchett humor that adults love to a younger audie [...]

    28. Man sollte es vermeiden, von den Essensresten hinter der Unsichtbaren Universität zu naschen. Wer weiß, was für Zauber sie getroffen haben? Eine Schar von Ratten und der Kater Maurice können seit dem sprechen und lesen. So machen sie sich mit Keith, einem einfältig aussehenden Jungen, auf den Weg viel Geld als Rattenfänger zu verdienen. Doch ein gefundenes Buch, weckt bei den Tieren das Gewissen, und so wollen sie nur noch eine großen Deal durchziehen, doch irgendetwas ist hier anders.Ein [...]

    29. We begin with Malicia telling a story. Malicia is a very good story teller. You see, she is Malicia Grim, the granddaugher of the sister Agonista and her sister Eviscera Grim, who wrote blood-and-bones fairy tails. But this story is not a fairy tale, this is a true story that begins with Maurice. Maurice has many of the characteristics of a Confidance Man. He has the outward charm and smooth talk to gain a young boys trust. But he can also be quite abrupt with the insults and sharp of tongue. An [...]

    30. I was hooked on these books in the late 1990's and I had to have every book that came out without fail. Unfortunately during the mists of time all the books have merged into one, but I still remember Death and Rincewind to this day and the over top adventures they had. But I have to admit my favourite novels were the ones that contain the city watch and the adventures of Sam Vimes, these novels still to this day stick out as the best of the series, but I never really got on with the books that f [...]
