Description

Mr. Putter and his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry both like music. He likes the broken hearts and big round heroes of opera. She likes the broken hearts and big-haired stars of country music. One day Mrs. Teaberry has one of her famous ideas. She and Mr. Putter will form their own band. Mr. Putter is a good sport. He buys a little horn and practices for hours. Finally, he decides that everyone will be happier if he uses the horn to hold up his tomato plant. Mrs. Teaberry, on the other hand, is very good at strumming her mandolin. It looks like Mrs. Teaberry will be the only person in the band. They'll call it "Plucking Without Putter." They both like that laugh-out-loud idea. A Newbery Medal honoree, Cynthia Rylant has created her own jolly, white-haired version of the Pied Piper. And John McDonough is the perfect narrator to entice children with Mr. Putter's humorous antics.
