Activity Overview


There are two settings in the story. New York, where most the events of the story take place (Times Square and Chinatown), and Connecticut, where Chester is from.

In this activity, students will use information from the text to compare and contrast the two settings.

Here is an example:

  • New York: "The sight was too terrible and beautiful for a cricket who up to now had measured high things by the height of his willow tree and sounds by the burble of a running brook."
  • Connecticut: "I lived inside an old tree stump, next to a willow tree, and I often go up to the roof to look around. On the other side of the stump from the willow tree there's a brook that runs past."
