Description

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. 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 Cricket in Times Square is a 1961 Newbery Honor Book.

      • bioText: George Selden (1929-1989) was the author of A Cricket in Times Square, winner of the 1961 Newbery Honor and a timeless children's classic. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Selden received his B.A. from Yale, where he was a member of the Elizabethan Club and contributed to the literary magazine. He spent three summer sessions at Columbia University and, after college, studied for a year in Rome on a Fulbright Scholarship. People often asked Selden how he got the idea for The Cricket in Times Square. "One night I was coming home on the subway, and I did hear a cricket chirp in the Times Square subway station. The story formed in my mind within minutes. An author is very thankful for minutes like those, although they happen all too infrequently." The popular Cricket series grew to seven titles, including Tucker's Countryside and The Old Meadow. In 1973, The Cricket in Times Square was made into an animated film. Selden wrote more than fifteen books, as well as two plays. His storytelling blends the marvelous with the commonplace realities of life, and it was essential to him that his animal characters display true emotions and feelings.

fullDescription

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. 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.

      • content: Chester Cricket's departure from bucolic Connecticut was never planned, but his arrival at the 42nd Street subway station brings newfound friendships and delight to both people and animals. Young Mario, whose parents own a subway newsstand, finds the cricket and, in spite of his mother's protestations, is able to house, feed, and share the musical secrets of this charming insect. Tucker Mouse and Harry Cat befriend the new arrival and teach him the ways of subway survival. Tony Shaloub lets the Newbery Honor Book speak for itself. As an unobtrusive narrator, he furthers the story by giving personality to each character--a devoted Mario, a gentle insect hero, an excitable Mama Bellini, a wise music critic, an emotional mouse, and a savvy cat. Enjoy, and enjoy again and again. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine

      • content: When Chester, a musically talented country cricket from Connecticut, is accidentally transported to the 42nd Street Subway Station in New York City, he finds shelter in a newsstand and makes friends with Mario, a young boy, Tucker the Mouse and Harry the Cat. All the warmth and humor of this Newbery Honor animal adventure are heightened by actor Rene Auberjonois's expressive reading. Vocal characterizations are superb--just right for soft-spoken Chester, fast-talking Tucker and streetwise Harry. The brief passages of music for Chester's performances are delightfully cricket-like and charming. Could anything be better than reading Selden's The Cricket in Times Square? Yes, listening to this audio performance. C.R.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
