Eve Titus (July 16, 1922 – February 4, 2002) was an American children's writer. She is particularly known for her books featuring the anthropomorphic mice characters Anatole, a heroic and resourceful French mouse, and Basil of Baker Street, a Victorian era mouse private detective who emulates Sherlock Holmes.[1] Anatole later became the subject of an animated television series entitled Anatole while Basil was adapted into the Walt Disney Pictures production, The Great Mouse Detective.

Titus was a member of Mystery Writers of America and The Baker Street Irregulars.[2]
