More About Cynthia Rylant & Arthur Howard
As a child, Diane Goode loved books and art. She has been drawing ever since she can remember.Of Italian and French descent, she enjoyed the richness of both cultures and traveled to Europeevery summer visiting family as well as cathedrals and museums. She feels that these earlyimpressions helped shape her appreciation of art and life. She studied art history at QueensCollege, but switched to fine arts, in which she earned her degree. Her love for Europe shows in the setting of many of her books Paris in particular, where two ofher recent picture books, Where's Our Mama? and Mama's PerfectPresent. take place. She drewon her experience of living for a short time in Pennsylvania, to do the art work for CynthiaRylant's story of Appalachia, When I Was Young in the Mountains, for which shewas awarded aCaldecott Honor Medal. Diane Goode has illustrated 27 books for children, including anthologiesand stories she has written herself. She has always been drawn to the classics and has illustratedmany of the traditional fairy tales. Of her process, she says: -I always begin with a rough dummy and then work on the individual pages, sketching veryloosely and quickly to establish movement and composition. I do these dozens of times, repositioning enlarging, reducing, adding and omitting. There are always hundreds of sketches foreach book. It sounds tedious, but it is the most exciting part of creating a book. When I msatisfied with these, I do the final art. All of my work is done on opaline parchment, a thin butstrong paper. I sketch lightly in pencil and use water colors applied with very fine sable brushes.Sometimes I use color pencils with the paint to soften the atmosphere.- Diane Goode now lives in Watchung, New Jersey, with her husband David, an author and collegeprofessor. Their son, Peter, attends Rhode Island School of Design.
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.
A laugh-out-loud book ... Jul 10, 2001
My children and I have been enjoying Mr. Putter and Tabby books ever since we accidentally ran across them at the library.
This charming story is truly brought to life through the illustrations. Ms. Rylant does a beautiful job of crafting her characters with words, but Arthur Howard gives them the final touch with his lively illustrations. The facial expressions on the characters often send us into giggles even before we've read the story! We have come to love Mr. Putter and his fine cat Tabby as well as their next-door neighbors, Mrs. Teaberry and her good dog Zeke.
I love these stories because the humor touches the heart and funnybone of both children and adults. We have shared some wonderful moments through these books. I feel they also give an opportunity for children to peek into the lives of the elderly and understand that their thoughts and feelings are not all that different. Mr. Putter is truly just a little boy in grown up clothing.
I highly recommend all of the Mr. Putter and Tabby books, but I'd have to say this is our favorite.
