Fall is Mr. Putter and Tabby's favorite time of year-a time to harvest juicy fruits and feast on baked goodies. But this year it's not going to be so easy. Old age is making Mr. Putter's legs, knees, and feet ... cranky. Even his cat Tabby suffers from a cranky tail. But that won't stop them! Mr. Putter comes up with a zingy way to pick the pears. And thanks to Mrs. Teaberry and her good dog Zeke, he and Tabby are showered with loads of yummy apple treats, but no pears--so no pear jelly. Can Mr. Putter will find a way to get pear jelly after all? This Newbery Medal honoree and her characters in the Mr. Putter & Tabby series offer valuable lessons, such as the importance of never giving up, using your imagination, and trusting your friends. To the delight of listeners, John McDonough's warm voice brings these charming characters to life.

"Listening is a true pleasure when the narrator and the character mesh. John McDonough richly personifies Mr. Putter with a mellow and Sparkly voice. He paces the quest for pear jelly with just the right timing for appreciating the foibles of "cranky" body parts, poodle bedecked underwear, and the generosity of Mrs. Teaberry. Few authors describe the bond between humans and their pets as masterfully as Cynthia Rylant. The interplay between her sparse text and illustrations creates a friendship that reaches the heart. John McDonough brings this friendship delightfully to the ear. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
