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. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 96]
