Mr. Putter and his orange cat Tabby love to visit the fish store. For Mr. Putter, it brings back memories of when he was a boy and had fish of his own. For Tabby, the fish make her twitch, and they generate some real excitement. The fish mesmerize Tabby and poor Tabby's huge eyes with that hypnotized look are pretty funny. She can't stop trying to bat the fish bowl. Mr. Putter, after a week of trying to disguise and hide the fish bowl, decides that the fish need a new home. His neighbor Mrs. Teaberry is delighted and her dog Zeke even more so. The swimming fish help him relax and don't make him the least bit twitchy. Rylant has created another warm and amusing story for beginning readers with humorous watercolor illustrations by Arthur Howard on every page. Kids will have a real sense of accomplishment with this early reader and find much to enjoy. 2001, Harcourt, $14.00. Ages 6 to 9. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

K-Gr 2-Another charmer about Mr. Putter and his cat. In this story, the man buys three goldfish, only to find that Tabby has a "fish problem." The feline is mesmerized and can't keep away from them. He bats playfully at the bowl and even sneaks under the pillowcase used to cover it. Ultimately, Mr. Putter gives the new pets to his neighbor and all is well once again. This easy-reader combines an interesting story with expressive illustrations that provide plenty of picture clues. Through short, simple sentences, Rylant creates strong, believable characters that youngsters will want to get to know. They'll enjoy this installment and look for other books about this engaging pair.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
