Reviews - What do customers think about Mr. Putter & Tabby Walk the Dog?

Great laughs for kids and adults!  Jan 7, 2008

Mr. Putter and his cat, Tabby, are just as nice as nice can be. Certainly, they are the best of neighbors for Mrs. Teaberry when the poor lady injures her foot. Since she can't walk, somebody has to walk Zeke, her beloved bulldog.

Of course, Zeke seems to be the perfect little angel, but sometimes first impressions are not correct. When Mr. Putter and Tabby become his temporary custodians, the truth all comes out, and it's time for Mr. Putter and Tabby to go on one wile ride with Zeke!

Mr. Putter offers all kinds of bribes to the out-of-control Zeke, including ice cream, a carnival and a trip to the zoo! Certainly, those treats would have tamed the wildest child, but not this bull-headed bulldog!

The fabulous laughs here are reinforced by humorous illustrations, every bit as wonderful as the writing!
walking the dog no walk in the park!  Jul 20, 2006
Mr Putter & his cat companion, Tabby, do the right thing by volunteering to walk the neighbor's dog when the neighbor is injured. The dog takes total advantage of novices & runs them ragged the 1st few days. Mr Putter stoops to bribery to get the dog to behave better the rest of the time. The neighbor never knows the whole story. My guess is Mr Putter & Tabby think twice before offering to help that way again! My 7 1/2 yr old daughter & I have been reading together for yrs & are devotees of Cynthia Rylant's work. We have only been reading the early reader Mr Putter & Tabby series for the last yr. It has the wonderful ability to appeal not only to the new reader mastering the skill, but also to the experienced reader, overseeing the learning process, or continuing to read to the child. This is a feat as many "early readers" captivate the early reader but put to sleep the overseeing adult!
Mr. Putter and Tabby Walk the Dog  Apr 7, 2000
Simple language and a hilarious storyline make this book perfect for the voracious or the reluctant reader. Mr. Putter and his cat tabby are a delightful pair, and their encounter with the neighbor's nightmare pooch will have kids laughing aloud. The accompanying illustrations only add to the text.

Perfect for children to read on their own, or with the help of a parent (because parents will find these stories equally charming).
