Chester
Author
Melanie Watt
Review
This is supposed to be a story about a mouse, but Chester the cat has other ideas. Hijacking the story from the author, Chester sends the mouse packing and tries to rewrite the story with himself as the star. However, the author gets the upper hand in the end, leaving Chester less than happy in a pink tutu. A cute picture book that will leave you laughing out loud.  Reserve a copy!
