In Mr. Putter and Tabby Walk the Dog, Mr. Putter was dragged through the neighborhood and wrapped around trees when he helped Mrs. Teaberry with her dog. So when Mrs. Teaberry telephones Mr. Putter to tell him about a brilliant idea, he gets a little nervous. Besides, sometimes her ideas involve “running fast or wearing feathers.” Mrs. Teaberry wants to take an afternoon train ride with Mr. Putter and their pets, Tabby and Zeke.
Mrs. Teaberry hasn’t ridden the train since 1938, so when they get to the train station, she is surprised to find that pets aren’t allowed to ride. Now it’s Mr. Putter’s turn to think of a good idea.
Cynthia Rylant’s humorous characters and situations ensure great reading fun for young listeners. John McDonough’s enthusiasm is perfect for this charming little book.
