Max and Carter are in Germany with their father who is researching the tale of the Pied Piper and a mysterious missing story by the Brothers Grimm. Everyone in the little village of Hamelin knows the story. But is the story over? After a myserious rat infestation, Max and Carter are lured away by beautiful pipe music and find themselves in New Hamelin with the mising children from the tale. Now Carter finds out he is the key to a prophecy that could set things right. But who can the children trust amid dangerous rat, Grandma Yaga, and the Peddler?
I like the story well enough but it lagged at time. I was disappointed with the ending - lots left unexplained and a sequel obviously on the way. Not sure my students will find enough interest in the Pied Piper to stay interested.
