By my count, there are almost 60 characters mentioned in The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents. About 2/3 of them are animals, most of whom are rats. So in this chronological list of the persons in The Amazing Maurice…, I’m going to highlight the rats (in green, for no good reason other than I like green) to show you just how many there are. I’ll do the same in this alphabetical list of characters.
