Author Melanie Watt is trying to write a story about a mouse who lived in the country, but her obnoxious, self-centered cat wants the book to be about him. He writes all over her pages with a red marker in an attempt to steal the focus, as the two go back and forth trying to gain control of the story. Will Melanie get to finish writing her story of the mouse, or will Chester prevail as author of this book?

A charming book written and illustrated by Melanie Watt with a comical story line that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. ( )

Great picture book of a cat who tries to take over the mouse's story and make it a book about himself. Z is for Moose is another of this genre that I loved. ( )

Darling, and creative book for a read aloud lesson from young readers. Chester the cat interrupts a sweet little mouse who attempts to tell a story. The cat takes over and tells how Melanie (the actual author) asks him to write a better story. Chester writes all about him! Melanie enters back into the story and takes a humorous spin on Chester, that we doesn't find so funny. This would be a great read aloud for teaching point of view. ( )

I fell in love with Chester and his red marker by accident after I received a copy from the publisher. Now I tell everyone I know about the hilarious cat telling his version of the story. The other two books in the series are just as great. ( )

This book is pretty good like when Chester covers a bunch of words like
Melenie watts side and the other stuff but really it's pretty good! ( )
