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.
