Book Description

Jan. 12 2001 Mr. Putter & Tabby

When their neighbor Mrs. Teaberry hurts her foot, Mr. Putter and his fine cat, Tabby, volunteer to walk her dog for a week. They soon discover that Zeke isn’t a dream dog after all. He might even be . . . a nightmare! After three days of Zeke's tugging, wrapping around trees, and chasing other dogs, how will Mr. Putter and Tabby make it through the week? Illustrator Arthur Howard captures their humorous predicament in lively watercolor-and-pencil illustrations.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Putter and Tabby Walk the Dog April 6 2000
By A Customer
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book about Mr. Putter and Tabby Feb. 28 2014
By Eclectic Music Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In general, I love this series. This one is less realistic than some of them. In real life a dog is not going to understand negotiations like this book implies. Also, giving a dog a hot fudge sundae would at best make him sick--and at worst make him really, really sick. But if you can overlook those points it's a fun read and the characters are charming.
