Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for the Mr. Putter & Tabby series:
 
 
* "Winsome and warmhearted, these books could become instant favorites."  —Publishers Weekly, starred review
Children's Literature
Rylant is a wonder! Here, with a limited vocabulary to encourage and enrich beginning readers, she captures the essence of the relationship between a wonderful old man and the wonderful old cat who is his faithful companion. Mr. Putter found that he has all the ingredients to make soup, which was an uncommon occurrence, the reader is told. But his stove, Bessie, "didn't warm up. She didn't warm up even a little. She just sat there, cold and quiet." What was Mr. Putter to do? He telephoned his neighbor and asked if he could make it there. She asked if he could make the soup with her dog in the house, and Mr. Putter said, "Of Course." Well, Zeke was delighted to have the company, and brought Mr. Putter his leash, a ball, a stick, a potted plant, a radio... all of which Mr. Putter put out of harm's way. When Mrs. Teaberry returned home, she found her neighbor asleep, and her house missing things! That is, until she looked in the bathtub. This is guaranteed to bring a smile to the reader's face. 2003, Harcourt, Ages 4 to 7.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-When Mr. Putter and Tabby finally have everything they need to prepare a favorite recipe, old Bessie the stove won't cooperate. Off they go to Mrs. Teaberry's house, but her dog Zeke has different plans for the visiting cooks. Exuberant drawings complement this satisfyingly silly romp.
