Have You Seen Chester?

a picture book by Andrew Murray, illustrated by Nicola Slater
"Buddy the dog and Chester the cat were always fighting."
No matter how much Lucy, their little girl, begs and pleads, the two animals clash.

One night, Chester decides, "I've had enough," and runs away.

Buddy watches as Lucy searches everywhere for the missing cat. He slowly comes to realize that he misses Chester, too. Buddy finds some of Chester's friends and, with their help, sets off to bring his feline friend home.

Have You Seen Chester? shows kids that, sometimes, you don't realize what's important to you until it's gone.

Louisa brought this book home from her school library. She liked the illustrations. She thought all of the animals were "cute." Her favorite part was when Buddy found the alley cats, and they became friends. She liked this book so much, she had me read it to her again right away.
