More About Cynthia Rylant & Arthur Howard
As a child in West Virginia, Cynthia Rylant never dreamed of becoming a writer. In her free time, she devoured Archie comic books and paperback romances and enjoyed the outdoors. But after taking one college English class, she was, "hooked on great writing... I didn't know about this part of me until I went to college-didn't know I loved beautiful stories." And one night, inspired by the Southern writer James Agee, she sat down and wrote When I Was Young in the Mountains. Named a Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, it was an instant success. Since that night, Rylant hasn't stopped creating wonderful books. Her stories explore friendship, love, grief, and other mysteries, and often draw on her memories of growing up in Appalachia. "I get a lot of personal gratification thinking of those people who don't get any attention in the world and making them really valuable in my fiction-making them absolutely shine with their beauty." She lives with her many pets in the Pacific Northwest.
Cynthia Rylant currently resides in Portland, in the state of Oregon. Cynthia Rylant was born in 1967.

We love Mr. Putter and Tabby! Nov 3, 2006
Everyone should read this simple, fun book! We bought this for our daughter's 7th birthday because she checked it out of the library so many times over the last few years. We like all of the Mr. Putter and Tabby books, but this one is her favorite. It is well-written, humorous, and perfectly illustrated. There are funny surprises in this story, and it makes us laugh every time we read it. What a great book! We highly recommend Mr. Putter and Tabby Paint the Porch!
A treat for all of us. Aug 18, 2006
You really cannot go wrong with Mr. Putter and Tabby. My 3 year old and 5 year old boys adore this book, we read it again and again and each time the picture of Tabby all pink makes the boys howl and me giggle... what more can you want from a book than that.

My three year old daughter Serena loves this book, we've read it and our two other Mr.Putter and Tabby books every night since we got it. she always laughs at mTabby's pink whiskers. This series of books is fun to learn to read from and a frolic for everyone.

My children, ages three and five, adore Mr. Puuter and Tabby, and I believe this is Ms. Rylant's funniest rendition of their adventures so far. When the box arrived, I read the book alone because I couldn't stand to wait. Ms. Rylant uses a nice collection of short and medium-length words for beginning readers, and the story rollicks along. Mr. Howard's illustrations capture the subjects' expressions beautifully. We checked these books out of the library so often that we finally ordered some to keep.
