Chester's Back


Chester's Back! Not a Melanie Watt Book. (By Melanie Watt) 2008. Kids Can Press. 32 pages.

A long time ago, in a faraway land, lived a cat named Chester.

Chester is back for his second adventure. And this playful cat is anything but cooperative for author Melanie Watt. Will this story ever get written? Will it ever have a middle and an end? Or will Chester keep frustrating the creative process? One thing is for sure, Chester is convinced he's destined for great things, he's the star of the show. And he doesn't want readers to forget it!

While I haven't read the first, it didn't keep me from enjoying the second very much. Perhaps loving Chester requires a certain personality, but I think it's cute and playful and all in good fun!
