Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse: 08/09/15
George Selden introduced Harry Cat and Tucker Mouse to the world in A Cricket in Times Square. I read the book back in elementary school, years before I started keeping track of my reading. I can remember borrowing every single book my school library had that featured these beloved characters.
Recently I saw a copy of Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse by George Selden on display at my local library. Feeling nostalgic I brought it home.
This one tells of the first meeting between Harry and Tucker, when Harry is just a kitten. They are both trying to survive in the hustle and bustle of Manhattan but haven't found their special place yet.
It's a cute fill-in-the-blanks type story. Anyone who has read A Cricket in Times Square will see how things have to end. Nonetheless, it's interesting to see how they got there and why it ended up being perfect for them.
