Editorial Reviews

"From the wryly humorous opening, in which the infant Tucker Mouse chooses his name, to the satisfying warmth of Tucker and Harry's defense of their drainpipe home in Times Square, the characters . . . are as vibrant and joyful as ever. . . . Wonderfully expressive black-and-white illustrations." -Publishers Weekly on Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse"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 on Chester Cricket's Pigeon Ride"Thoughtful but unpretentious, humorous without more cleverness, this is nothing less than a good story, well told and sympathetically illustrated." -School Library Journal on Chester Cricket's Pigeon Ride"Williams's big, breathtaking pen-and-ink drawings almost steal the show from the author." -Publishers Weekly on Chester Cricket's Pigeon Ride
