The Cricket in Times Square by George Selden

The Cricket in Times Square Series

By George Selden
Level 6

This is a fun and wholesome series. The back cover of the first book reads: “Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. He thought he’d seen it all. But he’s never met a cricket before, which really isn’t surprising, because, along with his friend Harry Cat, Tucker lives in the very heart of New York City—the Times Square subway station. 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.” The series supports loyalty and honesty.

Books in this series we have reviewed and recommend: The Cricket in Times Square, Chester Cricket’s Pigeon Ride, Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse
