Mr. Putter & Tabby Paint the Porchby Cynthia Rylant
Synopses & Reviews
Mr. Putter and his cat, Tabby, are itchy. Not because of fleas, but because it is hot, they're bored, and they're out of orangesicles. So when their neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry, suggests a sightseeing cruise, they're excited about an adventure. The boat makes them feel free! Plus they get orangesicles! Everyone has a great time. But as with many of Mrs. Teaberry's suggestions, things don't go entirely smoothly. Her dog, Zeke, doesn't want to leave the boat. It takes some kind words from the captain and a very special second boat, but eventually everyone goes home happy.
The nineteenth Mr. Putter & Tabby book has all the sly, sweet humor that has made the series a huge success. Cynthia Rylant's perfect ear for rhythm and Arthur Howard's comical illustrations continue to bring to life the quartet of characters readers know and love.
Mr. Putter and Tabby return with more of their gentle antics for young readers. This particular caper finds Mr. Putter and his old cat setting out to paint their porch until a squirrel, a chipmunk, and a dog make a mess of their plan.
Mr. Putter wants to paint his porch. He has a bucket of pink paint, a big brush, and some rags. And he has Tabby to keep him company. Everything is perfect, until a squirrel scampers onto the porch and catches Tabbys eye. . . .
While Mr. Putter tries to paint his porch, a squirrel scampers onto the porch, catching the attention of Mr. Putter's cat, Tabby. Soon, all three are involved in a colorful adventure. Full-color illustrations.
