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-When Mr. Putter and Tabby finally have everything they need to prepare a favorite recipe, old Bessie the stove won't cooperate. Off they go to Mrs. Teaberry's house, but her dog Zeke has different plans for the visiting cooks. Exuberant drawings complement this satisfyingly silly romp. (c) Copyright 2010.
