Read in July, 2011

This is such a classic, and like all good classics, it's not really because it's the most amazing piece of writing EVAR. Really. It's a simple story that glories in friendship, music, and the appreciation of one's surroundings. Simplicity makes for good stories. Does it have tons of other good lessons about fame and responsibility and place and adaptation? Sure. But those aren't the point. It's a cricket, a mouse, and a cat in the subway station of Times Square. Basic enough premise. Beautiful story. This is definitely staying on my shelves.
Oh, and as with most other books involving NYC, I feel like I need to attach this:
I Heart NY, because I just do.
