This book is a really great, short read that teaches that nice things aren't all that matter. This book is about a little dog named, Chester. Chester loves his family, but starts feeling neglected when they forgot to take him for walks, so Chester runs away. Chester runs into the forest and thinks it looks nice but the birds tell him it's too crowded for him. He then goes to several other places but realizes they aren't for him. He finally ends up at this mansion with a very nice lady who gives ...more

This story is maybe a bit "cute" but Imai's illustrations are so gently yet whimsically and emotionally powerfully rendered while leaving plenty of the page's space open that these wash out or overtake the cuteness. And Chester isn't the only animal to populate these pages, bringing along other dogs, birds, and several fish. Imai works in repetition and variations on a theme, numbered birdhouses—see Imai's The 108th Sheep for more numbering—while depicting buildings with exaggerated height and ...more

Imai’s (108th Sheep) new story of a free-wheeling dog searching for a family to love him may be a common tale, but Chester’s experience is anything but conventional. The sweet and sophisticated illustration helps move the story along as Chester leaves his busy family home in search of a better place where he won’t be forgotten. Though the text is sparse and the story fairly predictable, it is a delightful tale imbued with genuine personality and strong yet subtle visual imagery (Chester carrying ...more

This book will guilt-trip any dog owners out there who are not good about taking their dogs our regularly - Chester runs away from home because he feels unloved and forgotten about by his human family. After trying to live many different places, he finds out that his family is looking for him and he comes home, where he is treated much better from then on. Gorgeous, delicate, sweet illustrations.

Το διάβασα για το γιο μου 1,5 έτους στην ελληνική έκδοση "Ένα σπίτι για τον Φρίξο", εκδ. Καλειδοσκόπιο. Υπέροχη εικονογράφηση, καλή έως μέτρια ιστορία. Ενδείκνυται για παιδιά άνω των 2-3. Παρόλα αυτά ο μικρός μου μέσα από τις εικόνες αγάπησε περισσότερο το σκυλάκι μας και λάτρεψε τη σκηνή της "αγκαλίτσας".

Chester, the story of a dog who leaves home to search for something better, is a familiar and pleasant read. What elevates this book are the beautiful illustrations. Ayano Imai's style combines my favorite aspects of artists Lizbeth Zwerger and Yoshitomo Nara without seeming derivative of either; visually lush and playful.

I just love this charming book, the art is so whimsical and the story has a good moral, but is not heavy handed. I hope to find a copy that I can afford some day, for my grandkids. It is currently out of print and very expensive.

"You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone" would be the moral of this story. Chester, a cute pooch, feels neglected by his human family and sets off to find a new home. What he finds is certainly different, but not necessarily better.

Chester is a dog who runs away when his family starts to neglect him. He tries different homes, but they don't fit. When his family finds him, they have all gained an appreciation for each other.

Very sweet watercolor and pencil illustrations.

This is a story about a dog looking for a new home but nothing seems to fit. It is cute enough and could be an enjoyable bedtime read. Ages 4+
