A Cricket in Times Square (Audio Book)

CD/Spoken Word

Author: Selden, George
ISBN: 9781427204455 Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. He thought heÕd seen it all. But heÕs never met a cricket before, which really isnÕt surprising, because, along with his friend Harry Cat, Tucker lives in the very heart of New York CityÑthe Times Square subway station. Chester Cricket never intended to leave his Connecticut meadow. HeÕd be there still if he hadnÕt followed the entrancing aroma of liverwurst right into someoneÕs picnic basket. Now, like any tourist in the city, he wants to look around. And he could not have found two better guidesÑand friendsÑthan Tucker and Harry.

The Cricket in Times Square is a 1961 Newbery Honor Book.
