In “Chester Cricket’s Pigeon Ride” Chester Cricket, the cricket from Cricket in Times Square is homesick for the country, particularly after his friend Mario takes him to the planetarium. Chester finds his way out of his home in the subway, and his friend Lulu Pigeon takes him on a wild ride to see all the sites of New York City as well as what country New York City has to offer. Illustrations make up the story almost as much as the words do.
