    " Mr Putter had too much to eat and he can't sleep because his tummy hurts so he and Tabby go for a walk and look at the stars. Once his stomach stops hurts they both go to bed and sleep like a log. "

    " Mr. Putter wakes up at night because he ate too many jelly rolls. Not really a memorable book. "

    " One night Mr. Putter and Tabby could not sleep so they go for a walk. The moon was full, they see the stars, the big dipper, and the Milky Way 'full of milk'. This would be a fun way to begin a discussion about our solar system to Pre-K through 1st grade. "

    " When Mr. Putter eats twenty-one pineapple jelly rolls, he ends up with a grumbling tummy. Worse, he can't sleep A midnight stargazing stroll with Tabby seems to be just the cure--but could it be that Mr. Putter and Tabby aren't the "only" ones still wide awake? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/9/2012

    " I think Mr. Putter and his cat, Tabby, are adorable characters and I bet I'd like this series. The plot is not super sophisticated, there's nothing really surprising about anything in it, but the illustrations and story are cute. It's simple. And sometimes that's just what you need in a book. "

    " I didn't like their adventure in this book. Mr. Putter ate to much food and so he couldn't sleep so he took a walk. Then in the morning he ate a bunch of food again... "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
