Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Children's Titles for Ages 8-12, 2013

Tired of dodging fishwives’ brooms and carriage wheels, alley cat Skilley yearns for the comfort of Ye olde Cheshire Cheese, a popular London inn. When he hears that the innkeeper is in need of a mouser, he hatches a scheme so audacious it will surely set him up for the rest of his nine lives. Once installed at the Cheese, Skilley looks forward to a life of ease. But a resident mouse named Pip uncovers Skilley’s scandalous secret, and the desperate cat is forced to make a pact with him. The two become allies, and harmony reigns until they are drawn into an intrigue involving a tyrannical cook, a strange visitor hidden in the attic, and an evil tomcat called Pinch. The ensuing mayhem threatens the peace of Ye olde Cheshire Cheese - and the entire British empire!

Entertaining and delightful

This is a funny, light-hearted tale with wonderful characters and a great story. It has its sad moments and its heart warming ones as well. I didn't want it to end. I purchased this book for my daughter and everyday we looked forward to reading a new chapter. As soon as it was available on audiobook I just had to own it and the narrator did a wonderful job. This is a story for all ages and leaves you with a smile on your face and a new respect for Charles Dickens.
