Summary

Summary

Mr. Putter and Tabby love homemade soup. But when at last they have all the right ingredients to make some, they find that their treasured stove, Bessie, is on the blink. Luckily, their neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry, is happy to share hers. But watch out--her good dog, Zeke, would much rather run than cook. . . .

Booklist Review

K-Gr. 2. From the format to the gently comic story to the cozy, freewheeling artwork, everything works in this twelfth book in Rylant's series about grandfatherly Mr. Putter and his favorite companion, his orange-colored tabby cat. Mr. P. is all set to make soup, but his stove, Bessie, isn't cooperating. His sweet, elderly neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry, offers her cooker while she goes out for the day, but Mrs. Teaberry's dog, Zeke, has plans for the surprised houseguests--and they don't involve cooking. Tender, funny, and absolutely delicious. --Stephanie Zvirin Copyright 2003 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-In this episode, Mr. Putter and Tabby go to Mrs. Teaberry's house to make soup because their old stove, Bessie, is on the fritz. Her dog Zeke complicates things for them, for he is determined that the guests play with him, but in the end, they enjoy the best soup they have ever tasted. The chapters are short and satisfying, and new readers will enjoy Howard's cartoon illustrations. The antics of Tabby and Zeke will entertain young animal enthusiasts. Add this title to your library's collection of Mr. Putter and Tabby's previous adventures.-Sandra Kitain, Abrams Hebrew Academy, Yardley, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
