From the Publisher

"Another successful addition to a popular series."--School Library Journal
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Mr. Putter and his cat, Tabby, live next to helpful Mrs. Teaberry and her dog, Zeke. Because she is always cooking for him, Mr. Putter decides that he will serve tea at her new knitting club. Things go wrong when Tabby runs away with the end of a ball of yarn attached to a sweater that's been seven months in the making, and Zeke runs off with part of a guest's vegetable-covered hat. Mr. Putter must then use all his charm to calm the ladies, but they have the last laugh. As in previous titles, Rylant writes in a clear voice and uses simple sentences and easy vocabulary. Howard's funny colored pencil, watercolor, and gouache drawings catch the emotional presence of each character and the animals' antics. Another successful addition to a popular series.-Kathleen Pavin, Purdy Elementary School Library, Fort Atkinson, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
