Chester, un chat égoïste et imbu de lui-même s'est injustement approprié l'histoire de souris de Mélanie Watt. Il préfère parler de lui-même; il se croit si intelligent! Une histoire à son sujet? Mélanie s'en charge, que ça plaise ou non à Chester!

Mélanie Watt starts out with the story of a mouse in a house. Then Mélanie's cat, Chester, sends the mouse packing and proceeds to cover the pages with rewrites from his red marker, and the gloves are off.

Mélanie and her mouse won't take Chester's antics lying down. And Chester is obviously a creative powerhouse with confidence to spare. Where will this war of the picture-book makers lead? Is it a one-way ticket to Chesterville, or will Mélanie get her mouse production off the ground?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleverist and Funniest book I love reading children's books and am forever looking for new and exciting titles. Melanie Watt's Chester series is far and away one of the greatest ever. Her ability to take a lovably annoying cat and make him an unforgettable in all ways is equal to none!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Young Kids Will Love This Book! Melanie Watt stands alone as an author of young children's stories that are very funny without being silly and over-the-top. If you have ever read any of her Scaredy Squirrel books, you will know what I mean. "Chester" is equally hilarious and even children beginning to read in French will appreciate the humour from the illustrations alone. Chester the cat gets a hold of a red marker and completely alters the "real" book Melanie Watt is trying to write about a family of mice. This book is a huge favourite with my gr. 2 students as well as my older sons at home. Highly recommended!
