Mr. Putter and his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry both like music. He likes the broken hearts and big round heroes of opera. She likes the broken hearts and big-haired stars of country music. One day Mrs. Teaberry has one of her famous ideas. She and Mr. Putter will form their own band. Mr. Putter is a good sport. He buys a little horn and practices for hours. Finally, he decides that everyone will be happier if he uses the horn to hold up his tomato plant. Mrs. Teaberry, on the other hand, is very good at strumming her mandolin. It looks like Mrs. Teaberry will be the only person in the band. They'll call it Plucking Without Putter. They both like that laugh-out-loud idea.

A Newbery Medal honoree, Cynthia Rylant has created her own jolly, white-haired version of the Pied Piper. And John McDonough is the perfect narrator to entice children with Mr. Putter's humorous antics. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tobinsfavorite | 6/15/2013

    " 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! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Erhardt | 12/23/2012

    " 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 The Reading Countess | 8/8/2012

    " 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? "

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

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Reading Countess | 4/26/2012

    " 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. "

    " aww, so heartwarming - I love Rylant, but especially this series - I want to *be* Mr. Putter! (or his neighbor) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 7/25/2009

    " Mr. Putter and Mrs. Teaberry both love music, but when Mrs. Teaberry wants to start a band, Mr. Putter isn't so sure. Our girls like these stories. They are fun, with great illustrations, and are good to read aloud. "
