Transcript of The Cricket in Times Square

The Cricket in Times Square By: Abbie Byars
Author: George Selden
Period 5 Main Characters Setting Plot The story is about a cricket named Chester from Connecticut who gets caught on a commuter train heading for New York and after stumbling on the subway he ends up in Times Square. Mario Bellini, whose parents run a financially struggling newsstand, finds Chester, takes him to the newsstand and wants to keep him as a pet and for good luck. Mama Bellini is concerned that the cricket will give them germs, but Papa Bellini is more easy-going about the cricket being their. At the newsstand, Chester meets Tucker Mouse and Harry Cat, who spend their time searching the city for food and other thrown away items. They show him Times Square, which Chester finds overwhelming. During the story, Chester reveals his musical chirping talent. Mario takes Chester to Chinatown, where he buys Chester a cricket cage from the Chinatown shop owner Sai Fong. Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. he liked to sit at the edge of his drain pipe home, and watch the world go passed him. He thought he’d seen it all. But he’s never met a cricket before, which really isn’t surprising, because, along with his friend Harry Cat, Tucker lives in them middle of New York City. Mario is a young boy that works with his father at the Times Square newsstand in New York. Mario is short with shaggish black hair.
Cricket looks like a cricket, because he is, but he is small,
and shiny black. The setting of my book is New York city at the subway train station, and in
China town. Excerpt The exact qoute from my book is " The bustle of the day had long since subsided, and even the night crowds returning from the theateres, and movies had vanished."
That can be found on page 2 Point Of View This book is told in 3rd person. I can tell because it says he said or she said and they said, not I said or we said.
