The book “The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents” is aimed at children and even got in 2001, the Carnegie medal – the highest award given in the UK children’s writers. However, in the case of Pratchett, this does not mean that it will be of interest only to children, not at all. It just means that it would be an easy language.

It all started one day when living in a garbage heap on the outskirts of the Unseen University rats suddenly acquired the ability to think and speak.
