Sorry to anyone who is reading this. Chester hacked this review after it was posted and rewrriten some of my stuff. I cannot undo his red writing, so I just left it there. But anyways, Chester was a charming little book, and I dissagree to anyone who thinks it is just a little kids story. Sure, it does not have a ton of character development, and it is more of a back and forth between the author and her cat (the cat totaly wins by the way), but it was generally fun to read. It has a ton of comedy, the most notable of which is when Melanie gives Chester a tutu at the end of the book. That is some great illustrated comedy for any child. It is also some surprising motivation for any future writers. When Chester interveens the story (which he never does), his drawings are much simpler then Melanie's, but he still tries to make up his own story (which are way better)! This can show kids that no matter how great you can draw, it cannot judge if you can become a writer. All you need is to try to do it. So if there are any parents who need a new and funny book for their kids, you should totally get Chester! 4/5 (No, it is actually 10/5, because Chester made it sooooo great!) @BooksRUs of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
