From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3-Mr. Putter is determined to bake a cake for his neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry, for Christmas. He wants it to be completely unlike the fruitcakes she usually eats during the holidays-"Something light. Something airy. Something that would not break a person's toe." Readers will discover that this is no easy undertaking since he has no pans, has never baked from scratch, and has no cookbook. This low-key holiday story focuses on the loving care that many gifts lack. Young cooks will empathize with Mr. Putter's failures and be encouraged by his persistence and eventual success. The tale's combination of concern and humor is further enhanced by the appealing pencil, watercolor, and gouache cartoons. Though this title is not as enchanting as the first two "Mr. Putter and Tabby" adventures (both Harcourt, 1994), it belongs in most beginning-to-read collections.

Gr. 1-3. Mr. Putter and Tabby continue to enjoy their twilight years together in a read-alone that combines simple, lyrical writing and gentle humor. This time out, it's the holiday season. Concerned that his neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry, devours so much heavy fruitcake, Mr. Putter decides to bake her "a light and airy" cake. After several mishaps, with Tabby at his side he finally delivers a beautiful cake on Christmas morning--then promptly falls asleep in Mrs. Teaberry's chair. Howard's relaxed, mixed-media pictures catch the nuances of the cozy, affectionate relationship between an old man and a cat with all the right moves. Julie Corsaro

He doesn't want his dear neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry to break her toe for dropping one of those fruitcakes she loves so much...
And even though he doesn't know how to bake a cake (much less have pans!) he goes above and beyond to bake her a light and fluffy cake for Christmas.
A lovely story that reminds us that thinking of others at a very special time of year...is very special :)
What "I" love is that Cynthia Rylant has quite a knack for writing children's books.
Her books are so engaging.
My daughter (6) LOVES reading her books...
Not only are her stories magnificent but the artwork is always so crisp, colorful and refreshing...adding so much to the story.
Highly recommend this or any of the other Mr. Putter & Tabby books in the series.
