Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mr. Putter has decided to write a book — a mystery novel, to be exact. But being a writer is way more challenging than it looks. There's all that empty white paper to fill, all those tasty snacks to prepare (and eat), and then there are the naps....

This delightful new addition to the Mr. Putter and Tabby series is a tribute to good stories, delicious snacks, and wonderful next-door neighbors. And with its hilarious send-up of the challenges of the writing process, it's sure to become a favorite with aspiring authors of all ages.

Review:

"Vibrant pencil, watercolor, and gouache illustrations reflect the warm relationship between the man and his pet....Fans of the series as well as newcomers will welcome this story." School Library Journal

"Howard's mixed media celebrations of the two old friends, the depictions of Mr. Putter's cozy house and hearth against the snowy setting, plus the pleasantly varied page design all contribute warmth to this cheerful thirteenth book in the excellent Mr. Putter and Tabby series."
