      Oh. Mr. Putter and Tabby. Funny, gentle and revelatory. We discovered these books when our first son was learning to read and they are such a great comfort. They celebrate friendship and enduring companionship. There are not many books that feature the elderly or give you any particular insight appreciating the world or simple pleasures such as a freshly picked pear or making soup or spending time looking at the stars with your best and closest friends. Love these books.

      Rylant's books are some of my favorites! She creates fun and creative stories that kids will love reading; and I absolutely love Howard's illustrations! This particular story is about Mrs. Teaberry trying to convince Mr. Putter to run a senior's marathon with her, but Mr. Putter can't even remember how to run! She convinces him to do it because the second place prize is a train set, and Mr. Putter loves train sets. He does what training he can (touching his knees!) and the day of the race arrive [...]

      This was so funny! Very dry humor that most children will miss but adult's will enjoy. Great illustrations too. It's beginning chapter book with 5 chapters and 2-4 sentences per page.One of my favorite lines: "Mr. Putter didn't want to work out. He wanted to eat muffins with Tabby." I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

    • Kim Asbell says:

      I love these children books. They are great! I love how the main character is an older man. The stories are simple and make me laugh. My children enjoy listening to them as well. :)

      Mr. Putter enters a marathon at the insistence of his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry. He has his mind set on one thing: winning second place. Second, not first, because he desires the prize train set much more than the golf clubs that first place awards. Mr. Putter is bringing up the rear when Mrs. Teaberry's dog makes its way onto the race course. He's carrying a jump rope in his mouth and is ready to play. Little did Mr. Putter know that grabbing hold of the jump rope would help secure him a 1st place [...]

      My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series (through #18; the rest weren't published / available at our library yet). Mrs. Rylant's sentence structure is simple enough for beginning readers to enjoy but don't let that fool you! Each book contains an engaging plot, clever & silly humor, and underlying themes of friendship, thoughtfulness, and responsibility. We spent many hours laughing together at the (mis)adventures of Mr. Putter, Tabby, and their friends. We were excited [...]

      Another fun tale with Mr Putter and the neighbour Mrs Teaberry but this time they prepare for a race! Mr Putter is not really into training but he really wants to win the second prize so he goes for itD WINS! But what will he do with the prize he doesn't want? A fine solution presents itself.A great little story to encourage young ones to either train or put the effort into going for what they want in a light way.

    • Dolly says:

      Though not too realistic, this is a fun story about fitness and running a race. I can't imagine that this was a true marathon. Without proper training and given Mr. Putter's level of physical fitness, I could hardly imagine him running a mile, let alone 26.2 miles. But it's just a story, and a funny one at that. We have really enjoyed this series and we will look for more at our local library.

    • Shannon says:

      This is #17 in the series. Book Description:Mrs. Teaberry has persuaded Mr. Putter to sign up for the seniors' marathon. First prize is golf clubs, but second prize is . . . a train set! Mr. Putter really wants that train set. Never mind that he can't even touch his toes. Somehow, he has got to find a way to place second. . . .

      I heart Mr. Putter and Tabby. (I'm sure a teenager could have shown me how to make a heart sign out of keyboard letters, but I am not that cool.) Rylant's beginning chapter books are so terrific for first- and second-graders just ready to tackle longer stories. They are full of comedic situations and gentle humor.

    • Intrepid47 says:

      I know that I am probably way too old to be reading these kinds of books, but still, I loved it. This book always makes me crack up, and it is perfect for getting me sleepy before I go to bed. It is also great for when you are sick, and you just want a little something to read. I really liked this book.

    • David Belokonny says:

      I think this is a great book, as well as series, for emerging readers. The antics of Mr. Putter and his cat along with their neighbor, Mrs. Teaburry, are highly amusing. These books would be great for students at or near the second grade reading level.

    • Leona says:

      Not one of the best of the series. Actually, I think I liked this one least of all. Not enough focus on Tabby and Zeke for my taste. The relationship between Tabby and Mr. Putter isn't the focus of the book and that's where the series gets its charm.

    • Tobinsfavorite says:

      I'm very fond of Mr Putter and Tabby, and I liked this book as much as any of the others, except why did the race have to be a marathon? Is it because "5K" isn't a useful word for early readers? A marathon would have killed poor Mr Putter, and no one would want that!

    • Kristine Hansen says:

      Mr. Putter is looking for a heart attack the way he suddenly takes up running in this book. But hoping he's got his doctor's approval first, he runs a race - and has the most unexpected results. Love these books!

    • Stacy says:

      Beginning Reader Picture BookThis would be great for beginning readers. It is part of a series.Lesson Ideas:Research running marathonsRead nonfiction about older adults who runUse with a unit about respecting the elderly

    • Olivia says:

      This is my first introduction to this series and it has completely won me over. This story definitely had to do more with Mr. Putter than Tabby, but that is okay because he was relatable and delightful. It's a cute story with some silly moments and a good choice for someone learning how to read.

    • Lisa says:

      Mrs. Teaberryhas persuaded Mr. Putter to sign upfor theseniors' marathon. First prize is golf clubs, butsecond prize is . . . a train set! Mr. Putter really wants that train set. Never mind that he can't even touch his toes. Somehow,he hasgot to find a way to place second. . . .

    • Karen says:

      I liked this book, and I was delighted that Mr. Putter got his train set, but, I've noticed a touch of cruelty in some of these books. I don't care how fit a person is, it is not funny to see senior runners falling over.

    • Matthew says:

      A fun read.

    • Susan Erhardt says:

      Amusing, though rather more unrealistic than most of the books in this series.

    • The Reading Countess says:

      There's no denying that Mr. Putter and Mrs. Teaberry are good friends. But when the two decide to run a senior race, it's going to take cooperation in order for them to come out of the race winners.

    • JaNeal says:

      One of my favorite Mr. Putter & Tabby books so far. Rylant is a wonderful story weaver. Watch her details reemerge. The ending is also so comfy fun!

    • The Reading Countess says:

      Mr. Putter and Tabby "train" for a senior race, while Mrs. Teaberry and Zeke actually train. When the big day comes, will he be able to win the train set he so dearly wants?

      Fun and Funny!
