The Cheshire Cheese Cat by Carmen Agra Deedy & Randall Wright, 228 pages, read by Leslie, on 11/22/2012

The Cheshire Cheese Cat: A Dickens of a Tale

A community of mice and a cheese-loving cat form an unlikely alliance at London’s Cheshire Cheese, an inn where Charles Dickens finds inspiration and Queen Victoria makes an unexpected appearance.

A very whimsical story, with the mice and cat inspiring the stories of Charles Dickens, but in this the animals only talk to each other and not the humans around them.  It was cute but I thought it dragged on a bit for me.
