Mr Putter and Tabby Make a Wish by Cynthia Rylant

Mr. Putter is sure he is too old for birthday celebrations. And that means he's also too old for model planes and balloons and candles and cake. So on his special day, he invites Mrs. Teaberry and Zeke over for a quiet cup of tea. But--good heavens!--what could possibly be taking them so long to arrive?


[star] The humor in the illustrations as well as in the text will keep readers glued to the pages. -- School Library Journal (starred review)

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
