Reviews - What do customers think about Mr. Putter & Tabby Catch the Cold?

Cold myth perpetuated  Oct 5, 2005
Other than perpetuating the myth that you get a cold by going outside in the cold without a hat, this was a cute story.
cute story  Aug 27, 2004
Mr Putter catches a cold! He thinks back to his younger days when he got sick. His mother always took good care of him. She gave him soup, tea and let him read adventure books. His neighbor Mrs. Teaberry decides to take care of him like his mother use to. She does a great job.

I enjoyed reading this book. I have read others in the series and this one was funny like the others.

This book is good for early readers. If they enjoy the Mr Putter series they will like this one as well.

No Surprise!  Oct 19, 2003
I have all the titles in the series, and of course, I love this one. My children snuggle up and we have read this one over
and over. A must have for Mr. Putter and Tabby fans. Everyone will love the warmth and consideration from Mr. Putters neighbor and her dog, zeke. We should all care so much.
Best of the Series (So Far)  Jul 3, 2003
I've read the Mr. Putter & Tabby books with both of my children. It's a wonderful series for the beginning reader. This title is my favorite of the entire series. Mr. Putter has a cold and remembers what made him feel better when he was a boy. Chicken soup, some hot tea and an adventure book loaned by Mrs. Teaberry's dog, Zeke make this cold worth having. It perfectly captures just how much fun a sick day can be.
A great series built on loveable characters  Nov 15, 2002
My daughter who is now 8 and I have been reading the Mr Putter and Tabby stories from the very beginning when Mr Putter and Tabby poured the tea. In fact, she has learned to read thanks to this kind hearted old man and his "fine cat." This latest addition as the two of them deal with a common cold is uncommonly good. Cynthia Rylant has managed to convey the lives of two elderly people - Mr Putter and his neighbor, Mrs Teaberry - with dignity, humor and a sense of adventure in everyday living. My daughter loves this story and all the others because of the humorous situations and the likeability of the characters. I love them because as I approach my "Mr Putter years" -- I'm 56 -- I see him as a delightful example of what being an "old man" can be. Likewise I see my daughter learning compassion, acceptance and respect for older people so often missing in children's stories.

I urge any parent -- and especially grandparents -- to add this book and any of the other Mr Putter and Tabby books to their children's (and grandchildren's)reading repetoire.
