When I ordered this Eric Carle favorite and it had good condition ratings I assumed it was a working copy of the book. I sadly put it on my shelf along side of my other non working copy that does not chirp any more. With these kind of special books equipped with special sound components, a good rating should include a working copy. Very disappointed indeed!

The Very Quiet Cricket
This is a sweet little book! I would recommend this book to any parent for their children! Very pleased by the way the author put this content together.
Publishers Weekly, 1990-11-09 A small cricket hatches ``one warm day,'' and the other insects greet him. Though the little guy wants very much to respond, nothing happens when he rubs his wings together. Finally, as night falls, he spies another cricket and attempts to greet her. ``And this time . . . he chirped the most beautiful sound that she had ever heard.'' As usual, Carle's art is lovely and his story is simple and satisfying. But this book has something The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Very Busy Spider didn't have: an electronic chirping mechanism activated by the turning of the last page. Though the surprisingly realistic noise may get on parents' nerves, it will certainly intrigue and entertain its intended audience. Ages 3-6. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
