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...

Review of 'The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Maurice is a talking cat that has his own group of rats following him, as well as a boy. Together they get rich by pretending to save towns from rats. But their last job goes very wrong. There's something else in the shadows of their new town...

I listened to the new Audible version that isn't available in Goodreads yet. I wasn't expecting the book to be scary, but it is made for Halloween! Peter Seratinowicz does a very good narration job (the rat king whispers are scary good, but not good in noisy transports - be warned!). A brilliant story about stories. The short note from Rob Wilkins at the end is also worth it.
