Chester's Back! by Melanie Watt - ADVISABLE


Watt, Melanie Chester’s Back!, Kids Can Press, 2008. PICTURE BOOK


Fans of Chester will like this sequel. Chester the cat again takes over the telling of the story interrupting the author by re-writing and drawing with his red marker. The use of color and font to indicate the speakers adds clarity to this story-within-the-story where Chester is determined to be the star with surprising and hilarious results.

The little gray mouse is back as is the fun and silliness of the first book. Elementary children will enjoy this clever story which could also be used to teach writing, characterization and voice.
