Uncorrected Proof. 2001 Carnegie Medal Winner! The 28th book published within Pratchett’s beloved Discworld series, and the first written for young readers. The Amazing Maurice runs the perfect Pied Piper scam. This streetwise alley cat knows the value of cold, hard cash and can talk his way into and out of anything. But when Maurice and his cohorts decide to con the town of Bad Blinitz, it will take more than fast talking to survive the danger that awaits. For this is a town where food is scarce and rats are hated, where cellars are lined with deadly traps, and where a terrifying evil lurks beneath the hunger-stricken streets. Terry Pratchett proved with this award-winning novel that he was as much a master of young readers fiction as was of adult fantasy!
