    " There's no denying that Mr. Putter and Mrs. Teaberry are good friends. But when the two decide to run a senior race, it's going to take cooperation in order for them to come out of the race winners. "

    " MCL. I liked the part when they switched prizes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Belokonny | 4/12/2013

    " I think this is a great book, as well as series, for emerging readers. The antics of Mr. Putter and his cat along with their neighbor, Mrs. Teaburry, are highly amusing. These books would be great for students at or near the second grade reading level. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Reading Countess | 12/31/2012

    " Mr. Putter and Tabby "train" for a senior race, while Mrs. Teaberry and Zeke actually train. When the big day comes, will he be able to win the train set he so dearly wants? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tobinsfavorite | 11/3/2012

    " I'm very fond of Mr Putter and Tabby, and I liked this book as much as any of the others, except... why did the race have to be a marathon? Is it because "5K" isn't a useful word for early readers? A marathon would have killed poor Mr Putter, and no one would want that! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Snow | 3/18/2012

    " read for fun "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda Winkler | 3/14/2012

    " Not one of the best of the series. Actually, I think I liked this one least of all. Not enough focus on Tabby and Zeke for my taste. The relationship between Tabby and Mr. Putter isn't the focus of the book and that's where the series gets its charm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Erhardt | 3/10/2012

    " Amusing, though rather more unrealistic than most of the books in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Schmobes | 12/16/2011

    " Level 3. Kiddo loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 9/3/2011

    " I love Cynthia Rylant's writing. Even this brief first reader is lovely, poetic and humorous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 5/18/2011

    " reading these Mr putter and tabby stories feels like sitting on the porch with a cold tea and a cat at your feet. this is the first series my 4 year old enjoyed reading all of "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danette | 3/14/2011

    " When Mr Putter first meets Tabby. He adopts her from the shelter instead of buying a kitten at the pet store because he wants and old cat. I love you Mr. Putter :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 3/1/2011

    " This story is about an old man and his cat. It was very cute and shows how everyone needs a companion. Intended for younger audiences. I would use it for K-2. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dolly | 9/11/2010

    " Our girls have really enjoyed these books and it was fun to find the first book, where Mr. Putter and Tabby begin. We loved that he rescues an older cat from the shelter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lora Leigh | 7/12/2010

    " A cute, short book about a man who is very lonely and decides to get a cat to keep him company. My favorite thing about reading this book with my students is when one said, "Maybe Mr. Putter should just get married!" They were pretty sure that was the moral of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Schmobes | 6/16/2010

    " Level 3. How Mr. Putter and Tabby came together. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 3/29/2010

    " Mr. Putter and Tabby books by Cynthia Rylant are personal favorites. They are sweet and tender and just as much fun to read as her other books. They make a great story to read during "quiet time"...they are calming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 6/8/2009

    " Cynthia Rylant manages to pack so much affection and humor into the few words allowed in an easy reader. Howard, the illustrator, conveys Tabby's many moods with just a twitch of a whisker or the slightest kink in a tail. My 6 and 8-year-old nephews love this series, as do I. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/15/2009

    " I love this series of books. They are quiet and sweet and easy to read. The illustrations are sweet too. They make you want to slow down and enjoy life. "
