Chester, a country cricket who misses stargazing during his stay in the city, takes a breathtaking ride with new friend Lulu Pigeon over New York. Descriptions of Central Park and Times Square are evocative . . . Full-page pen-and-ink drawings are panoramic and most vibrant when depicting the familiar Chester, Harry Cat, and Tucker. (Booklist)
Thoughtful but unpretentious, humorous without more cleverness, this is nothing less than a good story, well told and sympathetically illustrated. (School Library Journal)
Williams's big, breathtaking pen-and-ink drawings almost steal the show from the author. (Publisher's Weekly)
Chester Cricket--the famous cricket in Times Square--is homesick. When his friend Mario takes him to a sky show at the Planetarium, Chester realizes how much he misses seeing real stars at night.
Happily, he finds his way out of the subway into Times Square, where he meets a new friend, Lulu Pigeon. Lulu takes him on a trip beyond his wildest dreams. From Central Park to the top of the Empire State Building, from the Statue of Liberty and back to Times Square, Chester sees Manhattan in style--and even finds a little bit of country in the city! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Editorial Reviews
