My daughter and I stumbled upon "Mr. Putter and Tabby Take the Train" at the library and have been hooked on the series ever since...
The books have wonderful, come-to-life stories with fascinating artwork that makes the book so complete you feel as if you really know Mr. Putter, Mrs. Teaberry and their adorable pets, Tabby and Zeke.
I love that my six-year-old treasures this series of books so intently - especially since she can't really relate to the two main characters! The vocabulary is simple yet encouraging...excellent for a young reader! ...with stories that are always fun for the adults in the family :)
He is surprised that the train set is second prize but figures Mrs. Teaberry will surely win the golf clubs that are offered as first prize. He doesn't care about winning the race. He just wants that wonderful train set.
First he gets into shape by searching for his sneakers and trying to touch his toes and having plenty of tea and biscuits with Tabby. Then they sit at the dining room window and watch Mrs. Teaberry's dog Zeke run with his jump rope in his mouth. Zeke is very excited about the race, too. On race day Mrs. Teaberry and Zeke wear matching outfits, and Mrs. Teaberry is ready to win first prize. She wants those golf clubs.
Mr. Putter is surprised at how many old people have turned out for the race. When the horn sounds Mrs. Teaberry is way out front and Mr. Putter is at the very end.
Then something very exciting happens! Zeke gets tired of watching and decides to run with all of the seniors in the race. But this one little decision causes a lot of trouble. Zeke was still dragging the jump rope. People started tripping and bumping into one another, and worst of all, Mr. Putter grabbed the end of the jump rope. Zeke is pulling him so fast that he became the fastest runner in the race-and everyone started cheering. It is an exciting ending. But who wins the amazing train set?
