Description

See below for English description.

Chester, un chat égoïste et imbu de lui-même s'est injustement approprié l'histoire de souris de Mélanie Watt. Il préfère parler de lui-même; il se croit si intelligent! Une histoire à son sujet? Mélanie s'en charge, que ça plaise ou non à Chester!

 

Mélanie Watt starts out with the story of a mouse in a house. Then Mélanie's cat, Chester, sends the mouse packing and proceeds to cover the pages with rewrites from his red marker, and the gloves are off.

Mélanie and her mouse won't take Chester's antics lying down. And Chester is obviously a creative powerhouse with confidence to spare. Where will this war of the picture-book makers lead? Is it a one-way ticket to Chesterville, or will Mélanie get her mouse production off the ground?

Original title: Chester
