Young readers are invited to read a good book.

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. Luckily, he couldn’t have found better guides to the city than Harry Cat and Tucker the streetwise mouse, who live in the Times Square subway station. He makes a third friend, too—the boy Mario, who hopes to keep Chester as a pet. But Chester has hidden talents, and soon exceeds the expectations of all his new city friends. Read the beginning of "The Cricket in Times Square" by George Selden and pick up a copy to continue reading at home.
