" THIS is a delightful story of a lonely man, a lonely cat and how they found each other. It is a very short read, but is delightful on each page and it teaches a lesson that sometimes all you need is a friend [human or otherwise] to share you life, tea and adventures with. I loved this little book. " said.

" It was good that he found someone that he could share all he wanted to do with, like waking up in the morning, having tea, resting in the summer sometimes...oh, and then in the winter, turning on the opera very loud and singing to it. And it was funny that he put "Tabby" on his mailbox too, to tell the mailer that he had a cat. " said.

" Mr. Putter is lonely and decides to get a cat. At the pet store, he is told they only sell kittens (who wants an old cat?). at the shelter, he has a choice, and chooses the oldest, creakiest one. Her name is Tabby and they live a wonderful life together. I'm more of a dog lover, but I love Mr. Putter and Tabby's story and their life together. I know it's fiction, but it shows early readers that the relationships between humans and animals are important and wonderful. " said.

" Why does this book make me a little bit sad? Such a beautiful story, gently giving several lessons about aging and animals and shelter pets. Just made me sigh in delight to read it.But I can't quite give it 5 stars. Perhaps it's because I did feel melancholy at the end. It's something I highly doubt a child would ever notice, but as an adult I do. Personally I wonder if this series might be more for adults than children...just a thought... " said.

" "Mr. Putter himself had not been cute or peppy in a very long time." My son loves this book--we are currently reading it nearly every night, alternating with The Yoda Chronicles, it must be said. It's a "mini-chapter book," which fits his reading level. And it features an older cat not unlike the one we have at our house! And also there are opera jokes, which Jamie loves b/c turning up opera is a running theme in our house, too. Will read more of these, I'm sure. " said.

" Wow! Cynthia Rylant makes you love old Mr. Putter with words that are so easy a beginning reader can read the book, and yet incredibly profound with such simplicity."All day long as Mr. Putter clipped his roses and fed his tulips and watered his trees, Mr. Putter wished for some company."Mr. Putter finds a very old, lonely cat at an animal shelter and now they both have companionship and their lives are no longer lonely. " said.

"I'm reading my way through some early readers, and picked this one up because it's written by Cynthia Rylant. It is a lovely story of a lonely older man, Mr. Putter, and his slow move toward cat ownership. The book tells the story of Mr. Putter who has a nice life, but no one with whom to share special everyday things, like muffins or tea. He does finally choose an old shelter cat, and the rest of the book tells of a relationship that slowly grows. In the end, Mr. Putter realizes that he has someone to share his life, not just muffins. Sweet story!" said.

"My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series (through #18; the rest weren't published / available at our library yet). Mrs. Rylant's sentence structure is simple enough for beginning readers to enjoy but don't let that fool you! Each book contains an engaging plot, clever & silly humor, and underlying themes of friendship, thoughtfulness, and responsibility. We spent many hours laughing together at the (mis)adventures of Mr. Putter, Tabby, and their friends. We were excited to find out what would happen as we started each book. HIGHLY recommend!!!" said.
