Chester

Watt, Mélanie (Book - 2007 )
Average Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
Chester


Item Details

Chester is more than a picture book. It is a story told, and retold, by dueling author-illustrators. M?lanie Watt starts out with the story of a mouse in a house. Then M?lanie's cat, Chester, sends the mouse packing and proceeds to cover the pages with rewrites from his red marker, and the gloves are off. M?lanie and her mouse won't take Chester's antics lying down. And Chester is obviously a creative powerhouse with confidence to spare. Where will this war of the picture-book makers lead? Is it a one-way ticket to Chesterville, or will M?lanie get her mouse production off the ground?

Even though Chester is trying to take control of the book, he's still sweet and lovable. Better for one-on-one viewing as opposed to reading aloud to a group. There is so much to see - you can actually read the book from cover to cover!

My husband and I bought this book - for no one but ourselves! Yes, it's that much fun, and reminds us both of the 'tude that both of our calicos display, um, frequently!

Absolutely love the way this book is written. Something different makes it fascinating, and motivates children to read.

I like chester because it is very funny and happy. I like when chester keeps on butting into the mouse story with his red marker.I ewould rate it 5 stars. alyssa -John Marshall

Melanie Watt strikes again. I love Scaredy Squirrell and now I love Chester! This book is great for a shared read with a partner. One person can assume Chester's role and one can read Watt's words. My daughter and I love doing this. We both love this book!! I like the part when Chester wrote Melanie Watt and it was so funny! (Adelaide -age 6)
