    Delightful!

    I so enjoyed this lovely book and plan to read it aloud to my 92 year old grandmother. She loves mice and Old England, so it will be perfect for her and the rest of my family. Highly recommended!

    A Cat and Mouse Tale

    Skilley the alley cat has made up his mind he is going to sneak inside the Cheshire Cheese Inn. So, he will cunningly convince the Innkeeper to let Skilley stay as the Inn's mouser. You see a mouser is a cat that catches mice. The Inn has the best cheese around and the Inn is overrun with mice.

    He finally sees the chance to sneak in after a customer. He puts on such a good performance and even caught a mouse. Well he convinced the Innkeeper that this was THE MOUSER for the Cheshire Cheese Inn. Skilley took off with the mouse further into the Inn and spit out the mouse. The mouse was called Pip and he has lived at the Inn his entire life. He could not figure out why the cat spit him out. Why didn't he eat Pip that is what any other cat would have done. Well you see Skilley has a secret and so does Pip. They agreed never to give away their secrets.

    They become buddies and together they are quite the little schemers. If they are careful and everything goes as they have planned they can live in peace with everyone, including the British Monarchy.

    The man at the beginning of the story that let Skilley into the Inn had a friend with him, Charles Dicken's.
    He found the Cat and Mouse antics to be very entertaining and with his imagination he came up with these fun and very unusual characters.

    Kudos to Charles, Carmen, Randall and Barry for putting their talents together into a neat little package for us to enjoy. The illustrator did a marvelous job of depicting all the characters through the author's detailed description to perfection.

    I highly recommend this book.

    Highly Recommended

    This was a wonderful story and included suttle hints of Charles Dickens. It was a great story about friendship.
