The Cricket in Times Square (Chester Cricket and His Friends)
Animal lovers especially will adore this sweet story about a musical cricket, and his pals -- a mouse and a cat, who share many adventures together including taking in the sights of old New York. A 1961 Newberry Honor book, it features illustrations by Garth Williams and is great for young readers because “intense” animal scenes are pretty minimal. (The first in a series.)
