Description

Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. He thought he'd seen it all. But he's never met a cricket before, which really isn't 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. He'd be there still if he hadn't followed the entrancing aroma of liverwurst right into someone's 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.

Professional reviews

"Chester Cricket's departure from bucolic Connecticut was never planned, but his arrival at the 42nd Street subway station brings newfound friendships and delight to both people and animals. Young Mario, whose parents own a subway newsstand, finds the cricket and, in spite of his mother's protestations, is able to house, feed, and share the musical secrets of this charming insect. Tucker Mouse and Harry Cat befriend the new arrival and teach him the ways of subway survival. Tony Shalhoub lets the Newbery Honor Book speak for itself. As an unobtrusive narrator, he furthers the story by giving personality to each character--a devoted Mario, a gentle insect hero, an excitable Mama Bellini, a wise music critic, an emotional mouse, and a savvy cat. Enjoy, and enjoy again and again. A.R. 2009 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
