    " This is an especially sweet tale. Mr. Putter's friendship with Mrs. Teaberry (and Zeke & Tabby) is beautiful. Like "Pick the Pears" and so many others, it really blooms here. It is also nice for my daughter to see Mr. Putter remembering his life as a little boy. "

    " I just love this series. Anytime grownups, especially older grownups without children around, are the main characters in a book for children, I get a silly grin on my face. I also think it's good for kids to see that life for others exists without them. "

    " It's Mr. Putter's birthday and he wants to have tea with a friend. But she makes him wait, and wait, and wait some more! Is it worth the wait? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 2/4/2013

    " It was a good book because Mr. Putter had to wait a lot for his neighbor to come for his birthday. And he was too old. I read it on my car ride back from Florida. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 1/31/2013

    " This is a fun story that reminds us that we are never to old to celebrate our birthday. Our girls love Cynthia Rylant's books and this series is particularly fun (especially when we read it with Gram.) "

    " Good Level 3. Mr. Putter and Tabby books offer a great sense of accomplishment because they are "chapter" books. Kiddo likes reading them, they provide a bit of a challenge, a good story, and fun illustrations. "

    " It is always nice to find a decent book to read. Nothing incredible (in my opinion), but a fun and feel-good story. "
