Mr. Putter and Tabby Spill the Beans by Cynthia Rylant
Rylant, Cynthia Mr. Putter and Tabby Spill the Beans illustrated by Arthur Howard 44 pgs. Harcourt Children's Books, 2009. EARLY READER. $15.00. Rylant's books are all so delightful, and this one does not disappoint! The illustrations by Howard are some of my all-time favorite! In this particular Mr. Putter and Tabby tale, Mrs. Teaberry convinces Mr. Putter and Tabby to tag along with her and Zeke to a cooking class....on beans and beans alone. Mr. Putter can think of a plethora of things he would rather be doing, but finally gives in. He and Mrs. Teaberry take their pets, Tabby and Zeke along and it turns out that things can get pretty exciting when it comes to learning how to cook with beans, especially when there are pets involved!
