Description:

Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. He thought he7;d seen it all. But he7;s never met a cricket before, which really isn7;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. He7;d be there still if he hadn7;t followed the entrancing aroma of liverwurst right into someone7;s picnic basket. Now, like any tourist in the city, he wants to look around. And he could not have found two better guides-and friends-than Tucker and Harry. The trio have many adventures-from taking in the sights and sounds of Broadway to escaping a smoky fire. Chester makes a third friend, too. It is a boy, Mario, who rescues Chester from a dusty corner of the subway station and brings him to live in the safety of his parents7; newsstand. He hopes at first to keep Chester as a pet, but Mario soon understands that the cricket is more than that. Because Chester has a hidden talent and no one-not even Chester himself-realizes that the little country cricket may just be able to teach even the toughest New Yorkers a thing or two.
