Details: Product Description
Even wizards produce leftovers.But a wizard’s rubbish is laced with magic, and for the rats that forage this rubbish, the magic has changed them – they can speak and read, and have rather grand ambitions for a comfortable retirement.Which is perfect for a con-cat like Maurice. He has his own magical talents, and wants to get rich quick. Together with the rats, and young (rather simple) Keith, the ‘piper’, they work the towns to create their very own plague of rats – then lure them away for cash.But in the run-down town Bad Blintz, this little con goes wrong, and suddenly these educated rodents aren’t playing to the piper’s tune . . .
Review
Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy ―
Guardian

Simply gripping story-telling ―
The Times

Powerful, passionate, mordantly funny and, at one point, unbearably sad ―
Daily Telegraph

An astonishing novel…I marvelled at the ferociousness of the humour, and the willingness to go into dark places ―
Financial Times

Great yarn written in fairly simple text ―
Liverpool Echo
