This week, I see my mental movie of The Cheshire Cheese Cat: A Dickens of a Tale by Carmen Agra Deedy and Randall Wright as a cartoon, so I really am just going for the voices. I don't want to say that these are the voices I heard in my head (as that makes me sound a little like my down the street neighbor), but these are the voices I imagined were reading the various parts to me.

As Skilly: Bob Hoskins.
As Pip: Freddy Highmore.
As Too: Emma Pritchard (the youngest daughter from the film, The Holiday)
As Agnes: I kept hearing Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle when Agnes was speaking, so since its a dream casting, that's who I'm going to go with. I'm sure there are plenty of girls who can do great Cockney accents, but hers is just the best.
As Coomes: Julie Walters
As Henry: Brendan Gleeson
As Nell: Carey Mulligan
As Charles Dickens: Jim Broadbent
As Pinch: Jason Statham (my resident go-to bad British guy)
As Maldwyn: Alan Rickman
