Very cute continuation. Jackson found it particularly hysterical. Anything that makes a 7-year-old laugh and read...win. ( )

Oh gosh. I can't speak for everyone, but if you want to know what makes me laugh, this is it. I loved the first Chester book, but was afraid that a sequel would fall a little flat. Um, no. I laughed even more loudly while reading this. ( )

These books seriously crack me up.

I really enjoyed this book for many different reasons. The main idea of this book is to use your imagination and creativity. This is represented throughout the book in a different way than most children stories. Instead of a conflict occurring and the main character seeing how he was wrong, the main character takes over the book and uses his imagination to distort the story. For example, when the author tells the cat to “cut it out,” he literally cuts out the drawing on the page. Another example of creativity was when Chester asks to become a star and the illustrator literally draws him as a star. The illustrations are crucial to this story. Without them you would not be able to understand the words and why some of them are red and not in nicely typed out font. ( )
