Booklist Review

Gr. K^-2. Mr. Putter has a cold and no one to take care of him. Tabby does her best by sitting on his head to keep him warm, but the sneezing and sniffling go on. A dejected Mr. Putter remembers how nice it was to be coddled when he had a cold as a child. Then good-hearted neighbor Mrs. Teaberry comes through with soup and tea, and her dog, Zeke, picks out a book for Mr. Putter to read. Although this isn't the best of the series, the pleasant humor is present in the art, and the text will resonate with kids who know what it's like to feel dispirited when felled by a cold. Unfortunately, Rylant perpetuates the myth that you can catch a cold simply by going out without a hat. It's germs, Mr. Putter; even Tabby has probably heard that. --Ilene Cooper


Publisher's Weekly Review

A number of familiar characters return in beginning reader sequels. In Mr. Putter and Tabby Catch the Cold by Cynthia Rylant, illus. by Arthur Howard, Mr. Putter is miserable: "Colds aren't so much fun when you're old." Luckily, Mrs. Teaberry makes it better with chicken soup, tea with honey and a little help from her bulldog, Zeke. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-Another sweet story about Mr. Putter and his cat. In this title, he goes outside into the snow without his hat and pays the price. He laments that it's no fun getting a cold now that he's an old man. As a boy, he almost enjoyed it because his mother would ply him with hot soup, mint tea, and adventure books. When his neighbor finds out he's sick, she sends her dog, Zeke, over, first with soup, then with mint tea. Finally, she sends him over with his favorite book, an adventure story about a brave dog. Mr. Putter, Tabby, and Zeke huddle in bed and read together. When the book is finished, Mr. P. declares that this is the best cold he's ever had. Howard's watercolor-and-pencil illustrations match the story perfectly and extend the humor in the gentle, easy-to-read narrative.-Lynda S. Poling, Long Beach Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
