Charming tale that takes place in Victorian England; the main characters are Skilly (a cat) and Pip (a mouse), who form an unlikely alliance. Their mutual enemy is Pinch, a fierce and hungry cat who makes his way into a public house famous for its delicious cheese. Among the cast in this action-packed story are Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins and even Queen Victoria herself. The safety of England itself is at stake and it will take the combined efforts of good-hearted and brave animals, along with the help of several well-intentioned humans, to set things right again. Loved the Dickens references, which added an extra layer of enjoyment. Includes expressive pencil sketches throughout, as well as cover art with a lot of eye appeal. Great story for middle grade readers; short chapters make it easy to find a stopping place, if you can put it down!
