The Cool Crazy Crickets to the Rescue

author: David Elliott
illustrator: Paul Meisel

Leo, Phoebe, Miranda, and Marcus, the friendly neighborhood kids (and Noodles the dog, their mascot) who started the club featured in The Cool Crazy Crickets, are back for a second book of easy-to-read adventures. On a quest for summer pocket money, they’re busy little-brother-sitting, pet-sitting, and running a lemonade stand. But when a one-eyed stray cat needs their help, will all their hard work be for nothing? The Crickets and their exploits — humorously illustrated by Paul Meisel — will have beginning readers jumping to join this cool crazy club!

The Crickets are back and they will have beginning readers jumping to join this cool crazy club!

author’s comments:
David Elliott says that his sister really does have a cat with one eye and that she was the inspiration for the cat in this story (the cat, not the sister). Author of The Transmogrification of Roscoe Wizzle, the Evangeline Mudd novels, and the best-selling picture book And Here's to You!, David Elliott lives in Warner, New Hampshire.
illustrator’s comments:
Paul Meisel’s warm and whimsical style is well known, both through his many years of editorial work for the New York Times and the numerous children’s books he has illustrated, including How to Talk to Your Cat by Jean Craighead George. Paul Meisel spends his days drawing in his "clubhouse" in Connecticut, where he lives with his wife, three sons, and their "mascot," Rusty, a Brittany spaniel.
