Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-From a neighborly distance, Zeke seems to be a "dream dog." So, when Mrs. Teaberry, his owner, hurts her foot, her friend Mr. Putter does not hesitate to volunteer to walk him. At the end of a leash, however, the little bulldog is a "nightmare." He tugs, tangles, and chases "big dogs." Mr. Putter, always accompanied by his cat, resorts to bribes of just the sort (ice cream, swimming pools, carnivals, and zoos) that tempt children to good behavior. Mr. Putter at last returns Zeke, and he and Tabby celebrate. This beginning-reader chapter book has a brief text (with a few words readers might have to stretch for), plenty of repetitive phrases, and lots of visual clues. Howard's illustrations are breezy, watercolor-and-pencil cartoons that extend the humor and give comic life to the mischievous canine, the earnest cat, and the hapless humans. Another winner from Rylant.

Review

“Watercolor-and-ink pictures squeeze every bit of life and humor out of the stories. Solid fare for easy-reading shelves.”--Booklist

Format: Paperback
Simple language and a hilarious storyline make this book perfect for the voracious or the reluctant reader. Mr. Putter and his cat tabby are a delightful pair, and their encounter with the neighbor's nightmare pooch will have kids laughing aloud. The accompanying illustrations only add to the text.
Perfect for children to read on their own, or with the help of a parent (because parents will find these stories equally charming).

Humorous and Sweet April 24 2012
By Abigail Larsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of all the Mr. Putter and Tabby books. They're creatively written and entertaining for the whole family, not just first-grade readers. Not only are they humorous and often touching, they bring a unique and fun perspective to elderly, retired people, while being very respectful of their age. The relationship between Mr. Putter and his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry is endearing and sweet.

In this particular story, Mrs. Teaberry asks Mr. Putter to walk Zeke several days for her. Mr. Putter is used to his mellow cat, Tabby, and walking Zeke turns out to be a lot more exciting than he's used to or prefers. Follow Mr. Putter and Tabby on their adventures trying to walk Zeke instead of letting him walk them!

walking the dog no walk in the park! July 19 2006
By reader mother - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mr Putter & his cat companion, Tabby, do the right thing by volunteering to walk the neighbor's dog when the neighbor is injured. The dog takes total advantage of novices & runs them ragged the 1st few days. Mr Putter stoops to bribery to get the dog to behave better the rest of the time. The neighbor never knows the whole story. My guess is Mr Putter & Tabby think twice before offering to help that way again! My 7 1/2 yr old daughter & I have been reading together for yrs & are devotees of Cynthia Rylant's work. We have only been reading the early reader Mr Putter & Tabby series for the last yr. It has the wonderful ability to appeal not only to the new reader mastering the skill, but also to the experienced reader, overseeing the learning process, or continuing to read to the child. This is a feat as many "early readers" captivate the early reader but put to sleep the overseeing adult!
Great laughs for kids and adults! Jan. 6 2008
By J. Arena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mr. Putter and his cat, Tabby, are just as nice as nice can be. Certainly, they are the best of neighbors for Mrs. Teaberry when the poor lady injures her foot. Since she can't walk, somebody has to walk Zeke, her beloved bulldog.

Of course, Zeke seems to be the perfect little angel, but sometimes first impressions are not correct. When Mr. Putter and Tabby become his temporary custodians, the truth all comes out, and it's time for Mr. Putter and Tabby to go on one wile ride with Zeke!

Mr. Putter offers all kinds of bribes to the out-of-control Zeke, including ice cream, a carnival and a trip to the zoo! Certainly, those treats would have tamed the wildest child, but not this bull-headed bulldog!

The fabulous laughs here are reinforced by humorous illustrations, every bit as wonderful as the writing!
We read Mr. Putter books! April 14 2014
By Calebini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've bought numbers of the Mr. Putter books for my granddaughters, and since I identify with him and his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry, I adore reading the books. The stories express gentle care of the neighbors for one another. I read one review critical of the deception the couple exercises in taking their pets on the train. My granddaughter and I, however, read the story from the perspective of old folks enjoying an outing with pets who snooze throughout the ride. I LOVE Mr. Putter's escapades, and think he is a perfect role model for this grandmother!
