內容介紹

還記得《愛麗絲夢遊仙境》作品中那隻經常咧嘴笑的柴郡貓嗎?牠總是帶著平靜,誘人的微笑,刻意掩飾自己的膽怯,變換無常卻又淡定自若的經典表情,和一雙碩大的眼睛,加上月牙的嘴形,鋸齒樣的牙齒,組成一張典型的笑臉。<<The Cheshire Cheese Cat: A Dickens of a Tale>> 一書中的柴郡貓更有另一份迷人的精神和態度。

陰暗潮濕的小巷裏,一隻流浪的柴郡貓Skilley和一隻可愛的小老鼠相依為命,Skilley保護小夥伴不受其他貓的攻擊和傷害,小老鼠也會把自己美味的乳酪與Skilley分享。其實牠們的生活環境很不好,粗暴的賣魚婦整日對牠們揮動掃帚,小巷裡過往的馬車輪子也會隨時威脅牠們的生命,Skilley渴望脫離這種艱困的環境,當牠知道旅店老闆正在尋一隻看家動物,便想出一個大膽的計劃,決心努力成為旅店的一員。如果計劃成功,牠與小夥伴以後就不用再擔驚受怕。這對不可思議的搭檔於是展開了一段不可思議的結盟計劃。牠們與殘暴貪婪的廚師,邪惡卑鄙的招待員開始了一場鬥智鬥勇的較量。貓鼠的聰明才智、奇思妙想,牠們的可愛、勇敢與團結,也在這場較量中,發揮得淋漓盡致。故事引人入勝,富有身臨其境的緊張,充滿詼諧幽默、讓人忍俊不住的小橋段,給讀者帶來出其不意的驚喜。
