In Mr. Putter & 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.

"Elderly Mr. Putter is delighted when Mrs. Teaberry invites him to take a train ride, especially when she reassures him that pets are allowed on the train. Once the two seniors discover that Zeke and Tabby are NOT welcome, the two bend the rules and manage to have a wonderful outing. Narrator John McDonough provides just the right voice for this series. Sounding as though he is smiling as he reads, he maintains an expansive pace that carries listeners graciously through the story. The unhurried pace is no doubt helpful to new readers, but because McDonough seems to enjoy these stories, it works for older listeners too. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
