I liked this book. First, Chester cricket got lost by going in a lunch basket and getting carried to New York. Next, the Bellini's who own a newspaper stand find Chester because they heard him chirping. Then, Chester meets Tucker Mouse and Harry the Cat. They all turn on the radio and Chester memorizes the tunes and chirps them. Mamma Bellini, who didn't like the Cricket in the first place decided he could stay as long as he chirped her favorite tunes which he did. He became famous for his chirps. Finally, Chester decided to leave New York and go back to Connecticut, his home town, on the tree stump.
