Book Description

Aug. 1 2006 Mr. Putter & Tabby
Mr. Putter is sure he is too old for birthday celebrations. And that means he's also too old for model planes and balloons and candles and cake. So on his special day, he invites Mrs. Teaberry and Zeke over for a quiet cup of tea. But--good heavens!--what could possibly be taking them so long to arrive?

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2–In the 14th adventure in the series, the bumbling yet endearing Mr. Putter wants to celebrate his birthday even though he thinks he's too old for such things. He calls to invite his good friend and neighbor Mrs. Teaberry to tea, and she keeps him waiting in order to surprise him with an enormous cake with dozens of candles, balloons, and a model-airplane kit. Mr. Putter enjoys the surprise and proclaims it was worth the wait. Howard's pencil, watercolor, and gouache illustrations continue to capture the feelings and emotions of the characters, especially as Mr. Putter impatiently waits for his guest to arrive. The humor in the illustrations as well as in the text will keep readers glued to the pages. The story is great for reluctant readers since the chapter-book format, short sentences, and mix of illustrations and text per page are perfectly balanced.–Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good Mr. Putter & Tabby book Sept. 15 2005
By Mary L. Abels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My son and I loved Mr. Putter & Tabby Make a Wish. Like all of the other Mr. Putter & Tabby stories, the book focuses on the kindness of friendship, and points out that no matter how old a person gets, they still feel like a kid inside.

4.0 out of 5 stars never too old for a party Oct. 25 2005
By Melissa Sack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Mr. Putter really wants to have a party for his birthday but he thinks that he is too old. He waits and waits for his friend from next door to come over with a surprise! When she arrives he finds that his birthday wish has come true. She brought cake, balloons and a gift! Happy Birthday Mr. Putter!

The cartoon- like illustrations in the book are really funny. Tabby is a cute kitty that always has a cute expression on her face.

This is a great book for early readers. There are pictures on every page and only a few sentences to each page as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Putter Books Are Great For Bedtime Stories! Oct. 21 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My daughter loves the Mr. Putter series because they have (very short) chapters and seeing Tabby's antics on the page are almost as good as watching cats on youtube. I love them because they are always quiet and calm and depicts great messages like 'think of special ways to make someone else more happy' and 'find pleasure in simple things'. The message in this book is that patience is rewarded mixed with go the extra mile. Some of the other books in the series have more of a plot that not even I could guess what would happen on the next page and this one kind of just kills time in a plodding way but if you're already into the series you'll appreciate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, Great Series Aug. 26 2008
By C. Olearnek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son has recently began wanting more complicated books when we are reading and I found these while searching on Amazon. I purchased them and am very pleased.

The story line is simple but follows a natural, building progression that some of the other "early readers" lack. The short simple chapters have allowed me to introduce a more advanced format to my son and I feel has really enabled him to progress to more complicated story concepts.

I am looking forward to picking up the rest of the series and would definately recommend it to others.
