The Cricket in Times Square is the first book in the series. It's about a cat named Harry, a mouse named Tucker, but it's mostly about a cricket named Chester. Chester lives in Connecticut. He was found by a lady who stuffs him in her purse. He gets carried all the way, to New York in a subway station. There's a family who sells newspapers in the subway station. And there's a boy who finds Chester and picks him up and buys a special golden cage with a bell that hangs down. Once Chester hears the bell he is able to sing. Then Chester has his own concert.
My favorite part is when Chester has his own little concert and he makes a lot of money because Chester makes beautiful music.
I would recommend this book and series to grade two to six because they are great fantasy stories about animals, but I would recommend them the most to people who like fantasy and animals.
By the way this book is the first book out of seven books. They're great books to read.

I loved this book! I read it with my 10 year who usually hates reading. She didn't want to put it down. We loved the two dynamics, the human world and the friendship between the boy and the cricket, and the behind the scenes animal world with the unlikely friendship that formed between the cricket, mouse and cat. The love and self sacrifice that all the characters had toward one another was just beautiful!

I first read this book back in elementary school in the late 1960's. It wasn't a required book to read, I just chose it because I guess at that age I was intrigued.
Because this was during the day and age pre-video games, a great book was an important find during that time. The Cricket in Times Square was one of those books.
I disappeared into it and loved being in the subway, visiting the newsstand and almost smelling the newspapers, and taking a trip to mysterious Chinatown. Even after all
these years I remember this book fondly and I was actually looking to see if it was in EBook form because I thought it would be great to read again. Unfortunately it isn't yet.
This book is a great book for boy or girl to read and I hope they enjoy it today as I did back when I was a kid. This book and the Men of Iron by Howard Pyle were my two elementary school favorites.

I bought this for my niece after reading it myself--SUCH a sweet book! This book is obviously written for kids, but it has something for everyone in here...it's filled with art, music, love. It's just really cute for a child or for yourself if you want to revisit your innocence for an afternoon

I liked it because it was funny, sad and engrossing. I think it is a great book for many ages. Third and fourth graders can read it alone, but would recommend it read out loud by any adult. It will keep your attention. I like that there were only a few characters because I could keep everyone straight. I gave it five stars because it was well written and the development of the characters and story line was well paced and had good highs and lows.

I read this to my 7 year old, and he liked it enough we got Tucker's Countryside from the library. I am now in the middle of reading this to his class and another 2nd grade class, and the interest level has been quite good (once I got a couple chapters in, but it's like that with every book at that age).

I purchased the book for my grandson, who is 7. Both he, and my daughter loved the book. The service was excellent. I highly recommend both this book, and supplier.

Even though it's an old story, my boys and I (ages 7 and 8) really enjoyed this story of a cricket who becomes an entertainer in the New York subway but eventually returns home to Connecticut to play to his forest friends.
