Mr. Putter and Tabby Pour the Tea (Mr. Putter & Tabby)by Cynthia Rylant
"These are the sweetest, most gentle Beginning Reader books you are likely to find. Mr. Putter is a retired gentleman living with his beloved cat, Tabby, and these short books are tales of their adventures and mishaps. Cynthia Rylant is one of the most prolific children's writers out there today, and she never fails to deliver. There are several books in the series, and each is a story you will want to read over and over again with your emerging reader."
Synopses & Reviews
"The gentle, affecting first volume introduces elderly Mr. Putter, who decides that a cat will keep him from feeling lonely. Rylants texts reflect admirable concern for brevity and meticulous consideration of every word. They are in perfect sync with Howards expressive sketches, which slip abundant visual jokes into sunny, transparent watercolors and gouaches, and fluid pencil and pastel scribbles."--Publishers Weekly
