Harry Kitten & Tucker Mouse is a great book, my grandaughter read it in school and has been wanting it for quite a while finally found it. It was used but in great condition, we have read it several times and she loves it every time.
Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse (英语)
"From the wryly humorous opening, in which the infant Tucker Mouse chooses his name, to the satisfying warmth of Tucker and Harry's defense of their drainpipe home in Times Square, the characters...are as vibrant and joyful as ever...Wonderfully expressive black-and-white illustrations." --Publishers Weekly.
"A splendid prequel to The Cricket in Times Square." --The Horn Book
George Selden (1929-1989) was the author of A Cricket in Times Square, winner of the 1961 Newbery Honor and a timeless children’s classic. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Selden received his B.A. from Yale, where he was a member of the Elizabethan Club and contributed to the literary magazine. He spent three summer sessions at Columbia University and, after college, studied for a year in Rome on a Fulbright Scholarship.
People often asked Selden how he got the idea for The Cricket in Times Square. “One night I was coming home on the subway, and I did hear a cricket chirp in the Times Square subway station. The story formed in my mind within minutes. An author is very thankful for minutes like those, although they happen all too infrequently.” The popular Cricket series grew to seven titles, including Tucker's Countryside and The Old Meadow. In 1973, The Cricket in Times Square was made into an animated film. Selden wrote more than fifteen books, as well as two plays. His storytelling blends the marvelous with the commonplace realities of life, and it was essential to him that his animal characters display true emotions and feelings.
Selden lived in New York City until his death in December 1989. He enjoyed music, archaeology, and J.R.R. Tolkien. His editor, Stephen Roxburgh, said, "Chester Cricket, Harry Cat, Tucker Mouse, and their friends celebrate the triumph of innocence and camaraderie over cynicism and selfishness. George Selden is gone, but his voice lives on in Chester Cricket's song."
Garth Williams illustrated all seven of the Chester Cricket books and many other distinguished works, including Stuart Little, Charlotte's Web, and the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

From my 7-yr-old: I really liked the story, my favorite part was Harry showing his muscles! And when the rats kept starting at them.
This is a fun book to get your kids reading

I teach 4th grade. We read "The Cricket in Times Square" together, and then I offered them an incentive to read this book also. Many of my students have read it and enjoyed it very much.
