Overview

A small cricket hatches “one warm day,” and the other insects greet him. Though the little guy wants very much to respond, nothing happens when he rubs his wings together. Finally, as night falls, he spies another cricket and attempts to greet her. “And this time . . . he chirped the most beautiful sound that she had ever heard.” As usual, Carle’s art is lovely and his story is simple and satisfying. But this book has something The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Very Busy Spider didn’t have: an electronic chirping mechanism activated by the turning of the last page.
