In Mr. Putter and Tabby Bake the Cake, Christmas is soon approaching, and Mr. Putter must decide what to give Mrs. Teaberry, his fruit-cake-loving next-door neighbor. Mr. Putter does not understand how anyone could enjoy a fruit cake, and so he sets out to make Mrs. Teaberry a "light and airy" cake for Christmas, one that "could not break her toe if she dropped it." Young readers will follow along with Mr. Putter and his good cat Tabby as they try to make Mrs. Teaberry's cake, from start to finish. Mishap prevails, leaving you to wonder if they will ever get through in time. It all adds up to a cheery Christmas story about giving and the saying, "It's the thought that counts!"
Mr. Howard's cartoon-style illustrations greatly enhance this wonderful story, which is written in such a format to be used as either a 3-chapter book for the beginning reader, or a bedtime story that is longer in length. Either way, the Mr. Putter and Tabby books would be a great find for emerging readers' shelves. Like having a kindly old grandpa next door, they only make life richer!
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.
