Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse: 08/09/15

Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse by George Selden is a cute fill-in-the-blanks type story.

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.

Four stars
