The Cheshire Cheese Cat: A Dickens of a Tale by Carmen Agra Deedy

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this little tale. The inclusion of Mr. Shakespeare made it quite entertaining, especially with his attitude toward what was going on in the inn, and everyone else seemed to be clueless about it.

The villains in the story were quite ruthless, which gave it an air of foreboding, but in a way that even young readers would find entertaining and somewhat lighthearted. Although, I felt a little squeamish at times with the fate of many of the residents.

Overall, an enjoyable read, and I would not hesitate to pick up another book by the same author.
