The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents

MONDAY, MARCH 22, 2021

9:00 AM TO 4:30 PM

Pratchett truly entrances in this classic fantasy. The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents chronicle the escapades of one wiley feline and his band of merry men...well, rats actually, rats that ate magic infused garbage. It is everything you could possibly want in a story, heartfelt and extremely funny as the reader is complicit in a plot to foil the real motivation of the rat catchers. As well as enjoying excerpts from the book itself, campers will spend the day working on their own miniature Maurice sitting atop a wooden spool. We’ll press pause on a moment in the story and capture the scene in a shadow box, not forgetting this sentient cat’s posse of Sculpey rats. The finishing touch will be a carefully selected quote sitting centre stage as the background of your intricately sculpted scene. This is a piece that you won’t want to hide away in the art cupboard!

The book...

With the debut of his first young-adult novel, science fiction writer Terry Pratchett invites readers ages 12 and up to visit Discworld -- an imaginary land well known to Pratchett's adult following. At the heart of this tale is a slightly twisted take on the old Pied Piper theme, a talking, thinking cat named Maurice, and a supporting cast of equally talented rats who bear such comical names as Big Savings, Nourishing, and Dangerous Beans.
