Reviews

"Children will make Chester's Way their own." -- School Library Journal"The virtues of variety, experimentation, and friendship are deftly handled in the amusing, believable story." -- The Horn Book

PreS-Gr 2-Kevin Henkes's charming story (Greenwillow Books, 1988) of two friends who are truly "two peas in a pod" comes to life in this quality production. Chester and Wilson do everything the same way, from cutting sandwiches to playing baseball. Then Lilly, of purple plastic purse fame, moves into the neighborhood. Lilly has her own way of doing things, and Chester and Wilson don't know quite what to make of her until the day she uses one of her disguises to frighten off some misbehaving older boys. Chester and Wilson look at Lilly in a new light, and discover that the three of them have more in common than they previously believed, and that perhaps different ways of doing things are just fine. Narrator Laura Hamilton keeps listeners engaged with her terrific intonation and distinct voice for each character. Background music and sound effects enhance the tale. One side of the recording has page-turn signals to help youngsters read along.-Judy Czarnecki, Chippewa River District Library System, Mt. Pleasant, MI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
