Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Mr. Putter and Tabby are back for their 20th (Harcourt, 2011) adventure in Cynthia Rylant's beloved beginning chapter book series. The crisp fall air and sound of a distant bell make Mr. Putter wistful about school. He devises a plan to get back into school by bringing his lazy cat Tabby and his amenable neighbor Mrs. Teaberry along with her mischievous dog Zeke in for show-and-tell. There's one hitch: the first-grade teacher and students are expecting the decidedly talentless Tabby and Zeke to perform tricks. The pets perform a single trick for the class, with disastrous results, but it's nothing an apology note and a batch of cupcakes can't repair. Narrator John McDonough's deep, regal voice is the perfect embodiment of Mr. Putter. He deftly conveys the mild emotions and ups and downs in the story. An entertaining tale.-Jennifer Verbrugge, Dakota County Library, Eagan, MNα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Review

"An amusing fall-flavored offering from the Mr. Putter and Tabby series that’s good for reading aloud or reading alone."--Booklist

By Patricia H. Locke on September 13, 2011
Format: Hardcover
My name is Patricia Locke.
I am an elementary school teacher in Safety Harbor, Florida. I have been teaching 23 yrs.
I absolutely love the Mr. Putter and Tabby series. This school year September 2011. My 2nd graders and I read the 1st in the series of books with Mr. Putter and Tabby. This book is part of our 2nd grade curriculum.
The story plot is basically about a man named Mr.Putter who lives all alone. He is sad,he has no one to drink tea and eat scones with.
No one to talk etc.
One day he decides a pet cat maybe the answer to his lonlieness. This is where Tabby enters the series. They become fast friends and the story ends with their lives intermingled their many adventures and both living happily ever after.
I typically would rate this story a 5 and still may.
I had an incident occur after we read the story where I noticed one of my precious little boys with his head down on his desk. He was silently weeping. My volunteer stepped in while I took this child into my office not to embarass him but to find out what was wrong. I soon learned that this little guy, who has 2 terrific parents, was going through some difficulties at home. Though amicable the parents were divorcing. During the Mr. Putter story he told me he became weepy thinking of his Mommy & Daddy being alone when he was with one and not the other on alternate visitation weeks. It broke my heart.I too had 2 sons when we happened to go through a divorce and certainly could relate to thid child's feelings.
I was able to calm this child and talk about all the happy new adventures that he could build. Just as Mr.Putter and Tabby did. I told him that he could write his own story. Dylan and Dad and Dylan and Mom's adventures.

Absolutely hands down cutest book. If you know an older man, grampa, dad, uncle this book is very cute. Or remind you of someone in your past. Me putter is always falling asleep or eating too much. Tabby is always there to join him. The next door neighbor is together and funny. No one is lonely or scared. It's very sweet. Good for beginner readers too. It repeats everyone's names often do my kids feel pleased to get through pages fast.

There must be 18 (20?) Mr. Putter and Tabby books written by Cynthia Rylant by now and I always buy the latest one as they are as much a delight for the adult reader as for the youngster lucky enough to have someone read them for him or her. Funny and interesting.

Reading to a youngster from the earliest age possible is the best way to guarantee reading success, even when a learning disability turns out to be present. If they have the basics of reading it makes it far easier to remediate their reading problems.

So many Mr. Putter books. Not a single stinker among them. Every single one is sweet, funny and lovely. *I* even look forward to reading them, which I cannot say is true for many books my kids like. We own every single Mr. Putter book and buy them for friends. Solid investment in cute, fun stories that don't treat the child reader like a doofus. Enjoy.

LOVE LOVE Mr. Putter! This is a wonderful book, absolutely delights my 4 year old son. However, we love ALL the Mr. Putter books (and Henry and Mudge). So, it would be difficult for me to give a negative review. The disaster that ensues in the classroom makes my son giggle each time we read it. Worth every penny for reading over and over again!

My granddaughter is a big fan of all Mr. Putter books and they are very difficult to come by since they were printed in the 90's. But, of course, you can always find what you want at Amazon.com and sure enough there was a whole selection of them. I bought every one of them and they were in excellent condition and arrived as promised. Gotta love Amazon.com! My granddaughter was so excited and loved every one of them as well.

I love all the Mr. Putter and Tabby books. This isn't my absolute favorite, but it's still really cute. Of course Mrs. Teaberry, Mr. Putter's good friend and neighbor, and her good dog Zeke, make them all special.

Mr. Putter, Tabby, Mrs. Teaberry and Zeke always entertain the grandkids as well as their grandma. The library didn't have this one so I ordered it from Amazon. You can also downloand them to your Kindle if you have one.
