It's summertime, and Mr. Putter and Tabby are tired of being hot. Their neighbor Mrs. Teaberry and her dog Zeke are sweaty, too. Maybe a trip to the pond will cool them off. Mrs. Teaberry packs a lunch of apple tea, tomato sandwiches, and kiwi salad. Mr. Putter likes her funny food. When they get to the pond, they rent a boat and find a shady spot for a picnic. They share tall tales while they eat. Mr. Putter tells about the time he won a worm race. Mrs. Teaberry tells about winning $300 and spending it all on nail polish. Soon everyone's feeling cool as cucumbers.

John McDonough's playful narrative makes every one of Mr. Putter's outings as delightful and engaging as the last. Young readers can't get enough of this lovable old character who sees the world through playful young eyes. Download and start listening now!
