When Chester Cricket lands in New York, he has no idea what's going on or how he got there and is scared out of his wits. Then, a boy named Mario finds him and takes him to his newsstand where his parents agree with Mario to keep it. When they leave Tucker, a city mouse, comes to visit the cricket. Chester tells him his story and they have some meatloaf together. This book is very funny, entertaining and inspiring and tells us that fame isn't everything.

This book was so good! Chester is a little cricket in times square. He lives in the newspaper stand, operated by Mario and his parents. Ario keeps the little cricket and Chester and Tucker, a mouse, Harry, a cat, have many adventures. I give this book 5 stars.
