"He was the best of toms. He was the worst of toms.": Carmen Agra Deedy & Randall Wright

The Cheshire Cheese Cat (Amazon) by Carmen Agra Deedy and Randall Wright is the tale of an alley cat turned mouser who becomes friends with a mouse. The book is an "homage" to Charles Dickens, and indeed, Dickens is not only a character, but is referenced throughout the book.

This book is a quick read, and rather cute. Personally, I really enjoyed it, not just for the literary references, but for the writing style and story. Occasionally, the text would be formatted to show the action happening during the story, which is always fun to read, in my opinion. This book is geared towards a younger audience, but adults can definitely enjoy this too. This book is set to be released in October.

I couldn't find contact information for either of the authors. Oh well.

In other news, Neve Maslakovic wrote a blog entry expanding on one of the questions in her interview! Check it out here. See you tomorrow!
