Hobo: Chester is a way cool cat. Take it from this famous and handsome cat, I recognize Chester's prowess as a fellow writer. Way to go, Chester, keeping Melanie in line, and telling that silly mouse who's boss. Don't get me wrong, I love Melanie's drawings, just like I love Susan Gage's drawings in my book, but I really appreciate all your footnotes and corrections. I give you two thumbs up (I really do have thumbs!)
People owned by Hobo, bookstore folks: people love this book. I just had someone buy this out of the store this morning, at full price, which is saying a lot, because hardcover books are getting soooooo expensive at full retail price. But these parents didn't even bat an eyelash, because their daughter was obviously entranced and highly amused by Chester.
We have Chester on display in our store right by "Hobo Finds A Home", "A Home for Dixie", "Chosen By A Horse", "Rescuing Sprite", Kitten's First Full Moon, and "The Art of Racing in the Rain".
It's a very charming book. At the very end, I was wanting more dialogue. But it's still very cute book for any child. I think this particular book needs to have it's own series going and see what else Chester is up to. It has a potential Garfield-feel about it. I hope to see more from Chester and Melanie Watt.
