Mr Putter and Tabby Write the Book by Cynthia Rylant

Mr. Putter has decided to write a book - a mystery novel, to be exact. But being a writer is far more challenging than it looks. There's all that empty white paper to fill, all those tasty snacks to prepare (and eat), and then there are the naps...This delightful new addition to the Mr. Putter and Tabby series is a tribute to good stories, delicious snacks, and wonderful next-door neighbours. And with its hilarious send-up of the challenges of the writing process, it's sure to become a favourite with aspiring authors of all ages.


Praise for Books in the Mr. Putter & Tabby Series: Winsome and warmhearted, these books could become instant favorites. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
