Staff Pick

"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

Publisher Comments:

"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

My son and I love these books! They are gentle, funny, and full of character. I like most of Cynthia Rylant's books, but Mr. Putter and Tabby are some of the best. (Though I think my son prefers the Poppleton books, by the same author) My son was happy to get this book and 2 others in the series at Christmas. It is also refreshing to read about an older main character.
