A new group of beetles has just moved in and they’re disturbing Tucker’s sleep with their loud music. But they can’t stop practicing if they want to win the Battle of the Bug Bands. Will Tucker find a way to deal with all this racket and get a good night’s sleep? These favorite characters from The Cricket in Times Square star in the brand new-adventure created especially for beginning readers.
Praise for Harry Cat and Tucker Mouse: Tucker's Beetle Band
"This well-told tale will appeal to the many young readers and their friends whose family members are in bands, and it serves as a wonderful introduction to the beloved characters in George Selden’s The Cricket in Times Square."
Story by Thea Feldman; Illustrated by Olga and Aleksey Ivanov; Inspired by George Selden and Garth Williams
GEORGE SELDEN (1929-1989) wrote not only the adventures of Chester, Harry, Tucker, and their friends but also The Genie of Sutton Place, which was one of School Library Journal’s Best Books of the Year. GARTH WILLIAMS (1912-1996) illustrated all of George Selden’s Chester Cricket books. His other distinguished work includes Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and the Little House books. THEA FELDMAN is the author of numerous books for children, including Suryia and Roscoe, which she co-authored with Dr. Bhagavan Antle, available in Spring 2011 from Henry Holt BYR. OLGA and ALEKSEY IVANOV are the illustrators of many children's books, including the Charlotte’s Web beginning readers in which they also replicated the style of Garth Williams.
