The Cricket in Times Square (Chester Cricket and His Friends)by George Selden
Synopses & Reviews
Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. He thought hed seen it all. But hes never met a cricket before, which really isnt surprising, because, along with his friend Harry Cat, Tucker lives in the very heart of New York City—the Times Square subway station. Chester Cricket never intended to leave his Connecticut meadow. Hed be there still if he hadnt followed the entrancing aroma of liverwurst right into someones picnic basket. Now, like any tourist in the city, he wants to look around. And he could not have found two better guides—and friends—than Tucker and Harry.
The Cricket in Times Square is a 1961 Newbery Honor Book.
Streetwise city mouse Tucker and his friend Harry Cat show country Chester Cricket around New York City in this charming tale.
