Mr. Icket is more than the average cricket. He is full of vitality – a “super cricket” who completes chores and acts responsibly.

Mr. Icket is the central character in the new children’s book by author Martha Abrams Marrow, “The Adventure of Mr. Icket: The Kindhearted Cricket” (published by AuthorHouse).

Within this delightful story, Mr. Icket travels away from home in search of adventure. As he makes his way through uncharted territory, he finds himself in many different scenarios, some dangerous, some pleasant. Young readers will follow Mr. Icket as he works on a potato farm, narrowly escapes a fishing pond, visits a beekeeper’s farm and more.

“My book is interesting and lively,” Marrow says. “And it encourages us larger creatures to find our own adventures.”

An excerpt from “The Adventure of Mr. Icket”:

“Happily, Mr. Icket found work in the potato field, enjoying it with energy and a smile, cleaning from around young growing plants… weeds of wild. He worked smart, doing his best. Mr. Icket then sent presents to his family and neighbor by way of ‘Cricket Express’ hoping they would be happy to receive them.”
