My son and I loved Mr. Putter & Tabby Make a Wish. Like all of the other Mr. Putter & Tabby stories, the book focuses on the kindness of friendship, and points out that no matter how old a person gets, they still feel like a kid inside.
My daughter loves the Mr. Putter series because they have (very short) chapters and seeing Tabby's antics on the page are almost as good as watching cats on youtube. I love them because they are always quiet and calm and depicts great messages like 'think of special ways to make someone else more happy' and 'find pleasure in simple things'. The message in this book is that patience is rewarded mixed with go the extra mile. Some of the other books in the series have more of a plot that not even I could guess what would happen on the next page and this one kind of just kills time in a plodding way but if you're already into the series you'll appreciate it.
Mr. Putter really wants to have a party for his birthday but he thinks that he is too old. He waits and waits for his friend from next door to come over with a surprise! When she arrives he finds that his birthday wish has come true. She brought cake, balloons and a gift! Happy Birthday Mr. Putter!The cartoon- like illustrations in the book are really funny. Tabby is a cute kitty that always has a cute expression on her face.This is a great book for early readers. There are pictures on every page and only a few sentences to each page as well.
We are huge Mr. Putter and Taby fans in our house. But, the formatting on the Mr. Putter and Taby kindle books are awful. Pages are duplicated, and pictures are chopped off. Pictures do not join together correctly the way they should. The publisher should be ashamed of itself. Honestly, my preschooler could have done a better job of the formatting.
My son has recently began wanting more complicated books when we are reading and I found these while searching on . I purchased them and am very pleased.The story line is simple but follows a natural, building progression that some of the other "early readers" lack. The short simple chapters have allowed me to introduce a more advanced format to my son and I feel has really enabled him to progress to more complicated story concepts.I am looking forward to picking up the rest of the series and would definately recommend it to others.
My son loves these books but the formatting in the kindle version is a nightmare. Texts are duplicated, pictures don't line up with appropriate texts. He was confused as to which text he should be reading at which time. Very disappointed.
This is one of a series of Mr. Putter books. I am a teacher and my first through third graders love this old man and his cat. I find that Mr. Putter and his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry with her dog, Zeke, help children to appreciate older people and to understand what aging involves.
