In Victorian London, alley cat Skilley wants to escape the hard life of the streets for the comforts of an inn. He makes a home at the Cheshire Cheese Inn under the pretence of being a mouser, but Skilley has a secret. He doesn't eat mice! Instead, he prefers cheese, and the best cheese in London is served at the inn. Skilley forms an alliance with the inn's mice, but complications arise when another cat moves in. There is also a mysterious resident at the inn who needs their help to find his way home. Will Mr. Charles Dickens (who frequents the inn) be able to help sort out the impending crisis? And what happens when Queen Victoria pays a visit? Read this delightful story to find out.

'On a teeny little farm, in an itty-bitty coop, a very small hen laid a big humongous egg.' Thus begins the story of Big Chick. In fact, Big Chick is sooooo big that the small rooster, the small hen, the smaller hen and the smallest hen can't believe that he is actually a chicken. Could he be an elephant? Maybe a squirrel? What about an umbrella? But when Big Chick saves the day, they all realize that he is one of them after all.

Chicks Run Wild

Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen (2011), 32 pages
Illustrated by Ward Jenkins
Audience: Preschool - Preschool
Category: Animal, Fiction, Picture Books

This fun, rhyming tale of chicks who just can't settle down for bed (they 'run wild' every time Mama leaves) is full of action and rhythm. Great for reading aloud, listeners will love it when Mama joins in the fun. 'In a squall of fluffy feathers, all the fowl sashay together. Mama shows them how to prance and how to do the chicken dance.' Mama's trick works, and the chicks are finally so sleepy that they have no choice but to say goodnight.
