"Listeners can almost hear John McDonough settling in for a relaxed read, and who better to narrate Mr. Putter's story than McDonough, with his warm, grandfatherly tones? He even makes the chapter titles sound exciting, so imagine how he builds the dramatic tension over Mr. Putter's come-from-behind running of a seniors-only race. Rylant has such a nicely developed cast of characters, and McDonough brings their endearing personalities to life--from the persistent Mrs. Teaberry (who else could get Mr. Putter to run a race when touching his toes is quite a challenge?) to the helpful pets Tabby and Zeke. Listeners of all ages will enjoy the warmth and humor McDonough brings to Rylant's pleasing story. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
