A Pocketful of Cricket
Written and illustrated by Evaline Ness
Inside Jay's dark pocket Cricket began fiddling.
The talking stopped.
A Caldecott Honor classic that celebrates friendship and
new experiences-back in print on its 40th anniversary
One afternoon late in August, before the start of a new school year, Jay finds Cricket. Cricket fits just right in small spaces-like under a tea strainer or in Jay's very own pocket-and Cricket makes the most exciting sounds. But what happens when it's time to go back to school? Will Cricket come too?
Forty years after its original publication, this charming tale continues to capture the imaginative world of a child.
