Maurice, an amazing cat who has survived on the toughest streets in the whole of Discworld, comes up with an idea involving talking rats and a stupid-looking child playing the flute. Everyone knows the stories about rats and pipers. 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 . . .
