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.
"Winsome and warmhearted, these books could become instant favorites."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
