Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Katherine Kellgren, Robin Sachs

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Katherine Kellgren is the perfect narrator for this children’s book. With her lively, versatile delivery and distinct pronunciation, not one bit of clever anthropomorphic wordplay is missed. Skilley is a street cat who doesn’t like to eat mice, but he does like cheese, so Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese shop in London is the perfect home. Skilley strikes an alliance with the mice, especially the literate Pip. With his Cockney accent, Skilley sounds down on his luck, but he’s got a heart of gold; Pip’s softer tone makes him sound cultured and educated. Kellgren’s portrayal of Maldwyn, an injured Queen’s raven who is living in the attic, is genius—imperious, condescending, but still a squawk. Robin Sachs pops in now and again to portray Dickens, who notices Skilley catching the same mouse over and over while he searches for the opening lines for his otherwise-complete new novel, A TALE OF TWO CITIES.
