About The Cricket in Times Square
“…The Cricket in Times Square is George Selden at his besst.”
In 1960, George Selden introduced “The Cricket in Times Square,” a children’s novel that transports readers into the world of Chester Cricket, a diminutive cricket hailing from Connecticut. Chester’s journey commences when he loses his way and finds himself in the heart of New York City’s Times Square. There, he is taken under the wing of a collective of anthropomorphic animals residing within the city’s labyrinthine subway system.
As Chester acclimates to his new urban life and forges fresh friendships, he becomes an instrumental figure in assisting his newfound family and the subway-dwelling animals in untangling a web of enigmas and dilemmas. These encompass a vanishing ring and an ailing kitten. Along this remarkable voyage, Chester gains profound insights into the potent dynamics of camaraderie, the gravity of unwavering devotion, and the pleasures inherent in city existence.
“The Cricket in Times Square” emerges as an enchanting and creative narrative, a paean to the multifaceted tapestry of urban existence and the enduring strength of friendships when confronted with adversity. Recognized with a multitude of awards, it remains a cherished narrative of exploration and companionship.
