THE CRICKET IN TIMES SQUARE

by | Read by Tony Shalhoub

Children Ages 6+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1960

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 Shalhoub 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. 2009 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
