From AudioFile:

Chester and his best friend, Wilson, have their own ways of doing things, whether it be using bike hand signals, swallowing watermelon seeds, or dressing as a combo for Halloween. "Peas in a pod," note their parents. Look out, Wilson and Chester! There's a new neighbor, and Lily has her own way of doing things. Working out the intricacies of becoming a threesome captures the vagaries and resiliencies of young friendship. Laura Hamilton is an unobtrusive narrator who puts the listener's total focus on the story. She narrates at a pace to encourage thinking about her words and appreciating Henkes's detailed illustrations. Discreet sound effects add just the right background to the story.
