Full of tricks, Maurice has a foolproof scheme to make money: he goes from town to town with his group of highly literate rats, spreading them like a plague, and then uses a kid who plays the flute to pretend to charm them out of town, taking money that the towns pay the boy for his services. Until the day, they cross paths with someone who plays a different tune. An animated film adapting Sir Terry Pratchett's children's fantasy book that came out in 2001, "The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents", the 28th in his "Discworld" saga.
