Les fantaisies de César (Mouse Books)
Chester and Wilson had their own way of doing things, and they did everything together. When they cut their sandwiches, it was always diagonally. When they rode their bikes, they always used hand signals. If Chester was hungry, Wilson was too. They were two of a kind, and that's the way it was - until indomitable Lilly, who had her own way of doing things, moved into the n...more
I just love this author/illustrator. He’s so vividly remembers childhood.
His illustrations, which wouldn’t appeal to me that much outside of any context, work so well in this book. They’re adorable.
This is a wonderful story, one that children will completely understand, about friendship. It’s about a friendship, and how it evolves. It’s about making room for new friends. It’s about what binds and connects us.
It’s a lovely story ...more

I enjoyed having this read to me by Vannesa Marano and Katie Leclerc.
I like the story about getting along and finding differences. We aren't all a like and that is a good thing. Chester and Wilson are stuck in their own world of diagonally sliced sandwiches until Lilly comes along.

Chester and Wilson, Wilson and Chester. That's the way it was.....until Lilly moved into the neighborhood. This incredible story tells of three loveable mice as they learn about what friendship is all about. Children will relate to the quirkiness of the characters and simply fall in love with them.

Chester and his best friend Wilson seem a little OCD at the beginning of the book, and have very strict ways of doing things. Then Lilly, a wild child, comes along and teaches them to lighten up a bit. While they don't want to be friends with her at first, they begin to accept her as one of their own.
Great story for teaching kids about friendship and accepting others.
In "Chester's Way" by Kevin Henkes, there was a mouse named Chester who always had his own way of doing things.

Chester had a best friend, Wilson, who did everything that Chester did such as riding their bikes if Chester wanted to, or only eating whenever Chester was hungry. It was always Chester and Wilson until their new neighbor, Lilly, came alon ...more
