The Cheshire Cheese Cat: A Dickens of a Tale is a collaboration of authors Carmen Agra Deedy and Randall Wright with illustrator Barry Moser that is due to be published on October 1 2011. This animal tale is a historical fiction, fantasy, and chock full of literary references that will entertain readers of all ages, though it is aimed at middle school aged children. The Cheshire Cheese is a pub that has the best cheese in England, a cranky cook, several prominent Victorian era authors as regular patrons, far too many mice, an a host of secrets. Skilley is an alley cat that escapes a life of dodging brooms by strolling in the front door of the Cheshire Cheese and taking on the role of mouser. However, he is hiding a secret shame. Pip is a mouse with a love of big words and a secret of his own. Unfortunately, an old foe of Skilley’s comes is brought into the pub as a second mouser, by a less than friendly barmaid, and complications begin to multiply. Everyone in the pub has a secret or two; including the animal, staff and patrons.
