Chester's Back! (Chester)
Chester is again busy with his red pen. When Melanie dedicates this book to her sister, Chester butts in with a few friendly insults and a whole lot of self-aggrandization.
The story, begun by Melanie in traditional storytelling format, starts in a distant place with a cat named Chester . . .who refuses to appear until he's good and ready. Then he denounces Melanie's story as boring and shanghais the plot, claiming Chester, the Cave Cat, actually invented the wheel. Melanie responds with a roaring fierce dinosaur and the threat that Cave Cat Chester will soon become extinct, and they're off as Chester and Melanie wrangle for ownership of the story. Melanie even auditions for a new, more docile Chester to star in her (?) book. But, of course, Chester retaliates on the poor "copycat" (a pig in a Chester outfit). Who will have the last word?
This is yet another irresistible and hilarious offering from battling co-authors Melanie and Chester . . .long may they continue to create together!
