Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. Rylant's new entry in the delightful Mr. Putter & Tabby easy chapter-book series has the usual one-two punch. Mr. Putter and his beloved cat love going to the pet shop, but Mr. Putter always gets a little nostalgic watching the fish, and fish make Tabby twitch. When Mr. Putter takes some fish home--to help him feel like a boy again and to give Tabby's tail some exercise--what seemed a good idea turns into disaster. Tabby becomes obsessed with the new arrivals. Mr. Putter tries covering the fishbowl with a pillowcase (which sprouts a tail) and a bucket, but he eventually has to take more drastic measures to end Tabby's "fish problem." As always, Howard's loosely sketched cartoon style depicts characters and situations with telling economy. Children will giggle at the goggle-eyed cat, sympathize with her misery, and breathe a sigh of relief once the fish are gone. --Shelley Townsend-Hudson


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Another charmer about Mr. Putter and his cat. In this story, the man buys three goldfish, only to find that Tabby has a "fish problem." The feline is mesmerized and can't keep away from them. He bats playfully at the bowl and even sneaks under the pillowcase used to cover it. Ultimately, Mr. Putter gives the new pets to his neighbor and all is well once again. This easy-reader combines an interesting story with expressive illustrations that provide plenty of picture clues. Through short, simple sentences, Rylant creates strong, believable characters that youngsters will want to get to know. They'll enjoy this installment and look for other books about this engaging pair.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
