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

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.
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.
