Review quote

"Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy" Guardian "Simply gripping story-telling" The Times "Pratchett is a prodigious creator of narratives...Maurice is packed with powerful themes and images...a very grown-up story, and a deserving Carnegie winner." The Independent "For sheer green-eyed-monster writer's envy, I have to confess to wishing I'd been the author of The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents.Not only is it powerful, passionate, mordantly funny and, at one point, unbearably sad, it is that rarest of things: a book that is heaven to read out loud to a pyjama-clad child." -- Debi Gliori Daily Telegraphshow more
