Summary
In this uproarious sequel to Chester, the battle of the picture-book makers continues. Which author-illustrator will come out on top --- Chester or Mélanie Watt --- is anybody's guess!



This time, there's no denying (in Chester's mind) that he's the star of the show. His already outsize ego has ballooned even more due to a spate of ?fan mail? on the heels of his self-titled debut. As Chester sees it, who needs Melanie Watt when they have Chester? He's got no shortage of his own storytelling ideas. With heavy paw and red marker, this control-freak cat does not hesitate to commit them to paper. When Chester starts acting far too Hollywood, Melanie calls an open audition to replace the high-maintenance feline. This isn't a move that Chester will take lying down.



Get ready for a seesaw comedy of dueling author-illustrators. Who will come out on top is anybody's guess!
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Starred Review. In this mischievous follow-up to her comical metafiction, Chester, Watt--who is both character and author--thinks she's hit on a way to keep her cat's huge ego in check: make him the star of his very own fairy tale. But as Chester once again makes clear, scrawling in red marker over almost every page (only the endpapers are left unscathed), he's not going to be easily placated--or dismissed. Being a picture book star has gone to his already swollen head: Dear admirers, he begins, Due to an overwhelming amount of fan mail, I, Chester, am back.... Colorful envelopes below this message are addressed to Chester from Shakespeare (Your #1 Fan), Einstein and Picasso; a typed note from M.W. next to an author photo reads, Please forgive Chester. He's forgotten to mention that he wrote all those fan letters himself. A tiny mouse (Chester labels him his butler) provides running commentary, sometimes through gestures only. Readers will be dazzled by the cat's rampant self-regard (he claims to have invented the wheel) and tickled by his ongoing battle of wits with his owner/creator. Ages 4-8. (Aug.)
