Cricket in Times Square (The) Study Guide


The Cricket in Times Square

by George Seldon

A displaced cricket befriends a mouse, a cat and a boy whose family runs a newsstand in a subway station. But how will he ever return to his country home?

Barbara's Notes: The study is a good choice to use after completing Charlotte's Web or Pippi Longstocking. It is a favorite among both boys and girls. (Grades 4, 5)
