#3rdfor3rd: The Cricket in Times Square

Welcome to #3rdfor3rd where I share books that my third graders recommend for other third graders. (Please note that my third graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for third graders.) Read more about this book recommendation series and format here.

The Cricket in Times Square

Book recommendation by Seamus.

My book is called The Cricket in Times Square by George Seldon. If you think a cat, a mouse, and a cricket can be friends then that's the exact same relationship in this book!

The cricket is from Connecticut. He gets buried in a picnic basket (by roast beef sandwiches) and he ends up going all the way to New York. He made two friends named Tucker and Harry Cat. Mario (a boy) finds Chester (the cricket) and buys him a cricket cage but he prefers his matchbox. But near the end of the story, something bad might happen ...

I like how the story changes from people not being famous to the cricket learning to be famous and get lots of money. I like how in the beginning it seems like nothing is happening (besides finding Chester).

I recommend this book to people that like books where the characters change. I rate it ten out of ten stars! It is exciting. It is dramatic. It is fun and it is funny!

(Note from me: this book is one that we use during the year for Book Club discussion groups as well.)
