Cynthia Rylant and Arthur Howard's series about the lovable Mr. Putter and his skittish cat, Tabby, is a terrific boon for early readers. Howard's detail-rich illustrations of these utterly charming characters perfectly complement Rylant's humorous, entertaining, and very readable stories. Kids will love reading these beginning chapter books, which include Mr. Putter & Tabby Pour the Tea and Mr. Putter & Tabby Toot the Horn. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

K-Gr 2-Another charmer about Mr. Putter and his cat. In this story, the man buys three goldfish, only to find that Tabby has a "fish problem." The feline is mesmerized and can't keep away from them. He bats playfully at the bowl and even sneaks under the pillowcase used to cover it. Ultimately, Mr. Putter gives the new pets to his neighbor and all is well once again. This easy-reader combines an interesting story with expressive illustrations that provide plenty of picture clues. Through short, simple sentences, Rylant creates strong, believable characters that youngsters will want to get to know. They'll enjoy this installment and look for other books about this engaging pair.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX

What I love best about the Mr. Putter and Tabby books is that they are about elderly people and their elderly pets in real world situations -- with a twist of humor, of course. (This is in contrast to the many other wonderful books about children, animals, and fantasy.) I believe this series helps a child to realize that in the real world elderly people are very interesting, even when they are restricted by "cranky legs."
The stories are sweet and the illustrations (especially of Tabby) cannot be compared. If you love cats, or their diabolical ways, buy this for the illustrations alone; you will not be disappointed.
We all hope to reach "old age" one day - I hope I have a good cat and it is this much fun!
P.S. This book in particular had us shrieking on the floor with the reflections of fish in Tabby's huge eyes.
These books are so well written. along with Rylant's other famous series, Henry and Mudge, You can't go wrong investing in Cynthia Rylant books they are all fantastic.
There is also a new series out by Rylant with Annie and Snowball a spin-off for girls from the Henry series.Also 2nd grade reading level.
And she has an early reader series out with Henry and Mudge, called Puppy Mudge for 1st grade readers. At a .6 to .8 reading level
Mr. Putter and Tabby books are so endearing. The begging of Chapter 4: "The bucket stayed over the fishbowl for a week. Mr. Putter tried taking it off a few times. But Tabby got all twitchy and batty and he had to put it back on. Finally Mr. Putter got tired of looking at an upside-down bucket." What will Mr. Putter do to help Tabby? Will he beable to keep the goldfish?

These books by Cynthia Rylant are hilarious!! I don't know who gets more of a kick out of them, the grandkids or me!Published 11 months ago by Kathleen B.
Predictable plot line, even for a kids' story. (Surprise, surprise, Tabby wants to bat at the fish.) But our three-year-old doesn't mind. Still, for your own sanity, I'd choose Mr. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Marshall W.
