Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
* “The amusing illustrations energize the story and add to the fun. An excellent choice for beginning and developing readers.” --School Library Journal (starred review)
Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Mr. Putter and Tabby love to sleep and usually they are very good sleepers. They sleep in a wide variety of places, including their bed. But one night Mr. Putter cannot sleep. His stomach is going rumble, rumble, rumble. Could it have to do with the twenty-one pineapple jelly rolls he ate at Mrs. Teaberry's house? Probably. Finally, Mr. Putter gets out of bed, puts on his coat and picks Tabby up in his arms. They go on a walk. It is a beautiful night. The moon is full and the stars are bright. Mr. Putter talks to Tabby about his childhood. When they complete their circle of the neighborhood they are surprised to see Mrs. Teaberry and her dog Zeke standing outside. Seems Zeke ate too many jelly rolls and cannot sleep. The neighbors sit on lawn chairs and tell stories in the moonlight. When Mr. Putter's tummy is quiet, he goes home and sleeps like a log. Emerging readers will enjoy this latest addition in the "Mr. Putter" series.

Mr. Putter and his cat have never had any problems sleeping. They could sleep anywhere at anytime. One night, however, Mr. Putter's stomach is grumbling and he is restless. Earlier that evening Mrs. Teaberry had made pineapple jelly rolls, and Mr. Putter ate 21 of them. To help his stomach, he and Tabby take a walk to look at the stars and run into Mrs. Teaberry and her dog, Zeke, who also ate too many jelly rolls. With soft pencil sketches colored with watercolor and gouache, the amusing illustrations energize the story and add to the fun. An excellent choice for beginning and developing readers.
