    Carmen Agra Deedy is a New York Times bestselling author and has been writing and traveling around the world telling stories for more than twenty years. Her books have received numerous awards and honors. Carmen has performed in many prestigious venues, but children are her favorite audience. Born in Havana, Cuba, she came to the United States as a refugee and like most immigrants sees the world from multiple perspectives. Randall Wright has written several novels for young readers.

    Barry Moser is one of the most celebrated illustrators of children's books of today. In addition to being an illustrator he is also a printer, painter, printmaker, designer, author, essayist, and teacher. The books Moser has illustrated and/or designed forms a list of over three hundred titles. Mr. Moser lives in western Massachusetts.
    In her first middle reader fiction title, New York Times best-selling author Carmen Agra Deedy collaborates with Randall Wright, author of several novels for young readers. Together they have created a story of deception, intrigue and daring action that reveals the unlikely alliance between a cheese-loving cat and the Cheshire Cheese Inn's mice in Victorian England. Skilley, the alley cat, and Pip, the intelligent mouse, devise a plan to restore Maldwyn, an injured royal raven and faithful guard in the service of Queen Victoria, to his rightful place in The Tower, but first they must contend with a tyrannical cook, a mouse-despising barmaid and an evil tomcat named Pinch. Will the famous author (aka Charles Dickens) suffering from serious writer's block, who visits the Cheshire Cheese pub each day, be able to help?
