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! ( )

For Marcos, Eva, Melina and Laya (crossed out)

For Chester because I couldn't have made this book without him. He's the smartest, most handsome cat in the world. I wish I could be lie him someday.
