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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mr. Putter & Tabby Take the Train?
This is my favorite of the series Jun 1, 2007
I'm a hard core Cynthia Ryland fan, and the Mr Putter series is my favorite of her prolific works. I love how she brings older people (Mr Putter and his delightful neighbor) to life, and shows their passions and yearnings, and their humanity... in ways that kids can understand and relate with.
a few concerns Jul 3, 2006
I love Cynthia Rylant books. I collect them by the dozens for use in my classroom. I was a little concerned with this book because the character was sneaky in getting his pet on the train. I don't like to give my children the idea that it is okay to be sneaky to get by the rules. I'm not sure that I will put this one on my shelf.
Charming but be aware the message you're sending Feb 23, 2006
I love the Mr Putter books as well as Cynthia Rylant's work in general. This book is a charming addition to the series, and one especially good for kids who love vehicles/trains as my little boy does. **However, if you're trying to be super-careful about what moral messages you send your kids, you should know the plot before you buy this story. Pets are not allowed on trains, so Mr Putter & Mrs Teaberry _smuggle_ Tabby and Zeke onto the train with them. Not so good for teaching kids to respect rules...**
The bottom line: I read this book with my son because we both enjoy it, but eventually he will start to notice how Mr Putter breaks the rules and we'll have to have a discussion about it.
Riding a train. Oct 5, 2005
This book is a reminder of how pleasant it is to ride the train, even though they do smuggle their pets on-board.
A Cool Book! May 23, 2001
I liked this book because it's a good and funny book. The way Mr. Putter keeps on saying, "Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you very, very, sure? " is funny. It's it a little easy to read. It reminded me of Poppleton. Most kids would like this book. (age 8)
