Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Mr. Putter decides that his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry deserves the lightest most delightful cake she will ever eat as a Christmas present. Not knowing how to bake a cake and not having the equipment or ingredients do not prove to be a deterrent. Mr. Putter succeeds and Mrs. Teaberry is delighted. The illustrations are as humorous as the story. 1997 (orig.
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Mr. Putter loves to give Christmas presents. He puzzles over the proper gift for his neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry. Finally, he decides to bake her a cake. The problem is, he has no idea how to bake and doesn't even own cake pans! This easy reader stands out from the rest because the story is touching and funny rather than contrived.
Julie Corsaro
Mr. Putter and Tabby continue to enjoy their twilight years together in a read-alone that combines simple, lyrical writing and gentle humor. This time out, it's the holiday season. Concerned that his neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry, devours so much heavy fruitcake, Mr. Putter decides to bake her "a light and airy" cake. After several mishaps, with Tabby at his side he finally delivers a beautiful cake on Christmas morning--then promptly falls asleep in Mrs. Teaberry's chair. Howard's relaxed, mixed-media pictures catch the nuances of the cozy, affectionate relationship between an old man and a cat with all the right moves.
