The Cricket in Times SquareAudiobook CD - 2008
The adventures of a country cricket who unintentionally arrives in New York and is befriended by Tucker Mouse and Harry Cat.
Streetwise city mouse Tucker and his friend Harry Cat show country Chester Cricket around New York City in this charming tale.
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.
A musically inclined country cricket who unintentionally arrives in New York City is befriended by Tucker Mouse and Harry Cat as well as Mario, a boy who rescues Chester from a dusty corner of the subway station and brings him to live in the safety of his parents' newsstand. A Newbery Honor Book. Simultaneous.
