Mr. Putter and his fine cat, Tabby, love reading their favorite books over and over. So when Mr. Putter sees a sign at the library that says "Read Aloud with Your Pet at Story Time," he signs up!

With Zeke up to his usual tricks, story time might get too exciting! This volume in the beloved Mr. Putter and Tabby series was named a Geisel Honor Book by the American Library Association.

Booklist Review

When the library invites folks to read aloud to their pets at storytime, Mr. Putter takes his lovable cat, Tabby, while Mrs. Teaberry takes her adventurous dog, Zeke. Zeke barks and howls to help tell a story, while Tabby participates by lounging on the children's laps, heads, and feet. Told in five short chapters, the amusing narrative reflects the characters' personalities. The illustrations pencil drawings washed with gentle colors add amusing visual details. In the 20 years since the Mr. Putter & Tabby series began, its signature combination of storytelling, wit, and humanity have made it a staple of the beginning reader section.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Mr. Putter and Tabby go on their most exciting adventure yet: a trip to the library for a special "read with your pet" storytime. The two usually lead a pretty calm existence, but Mr. Putter is willing to try something new because of his fond memories of his teachers reading stories to the class. He shares his news with Mrs. Teaberry, and she signs up, too, bringing her dog Zeke. Mr. Putter is a good library reader and he chooses his book with care. The readings come off without a hitch-or well, almost (Zeke!)-and the group is rewarded with stickers and free bookmarks. This is another solid easy reader from this creative team, with the standard larger font, simple sentences, cartoon illustrations, and excellent use of white space. A perfect selection for storytime or anytime sharing.- Melisa Bailey, Harford County Library System, MD (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
