Mr. Putter and Tabby Smell the Roses by Cynthia Rylant- ADVISABLE

Rylant, Cynthia. Mr. Putter and Tabby Smell the Roses, PICTURE BOOK. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016. $5.99. Mr. Putter and Mrs. Teaberry are neighbors. They celebrate everything together. Mrs. Teaberry’s birthday is coming up and Mr. Putter decides he wants to do something special. They spend the day at a plant conservatory and eat ice cream after. It is wonderful despite Mrs. Teaberry’s dog, Zeke, getting into a bit of trouble. There seems to be a short flashback scene in each book where we get to read about Mr. Putter as a little boy, which I find charming and sweet. These books contain very short chapters and would be good for readers beginning to get into that format. You’ll also want to purchase if you have other Mr. Putter and Tabby books in your collection. K-3- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
