This is one of the stories from the Mr. Putter and Tabby series. It is about a man named Mr. Putter who gets invited by his neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry, to go on a train ride for an afternoon of fun. Mr. Putter loved the idea because he loves trains. He asked if they could bring their pets, Tabby the cat and Zeke the dog; Mrs. Teaberry explained that she was sure that pets were allowed. Once they arrived at the train station, they were told that pets were not allowed; however, this did not stop them. They returned one hour later with Tabby in a basket and Zeke in a bag. They had the best train ride of their lives.I thought this was a really cute chapter book with great pictures. I would read this to children in kindergarten through third grades; however, I think it is more geared towards second and third grades because it is a chapter book. A great time to read it is when students are learning about different types of transportation because it is all about riding on a train. In addition, it could be read when learning about animals because two of the main characters are a dog and a cat.
so this is a good book for young reades and if you are relaxed and want to read a nice short story and not just mr.putter and tabby take a train all of them
