Mr. Putter & Tabby Bake the Cake (paperback)
Newbery Medal Award winner Cythia Rylant writes a charming, funny picture book series for young readers, featuring two of her most beloved characters. In this volume, Mr. Putter and his fine cat, Tabby, decide to bake a fine, airy Christmas cake for their neighbor Mrs. Teaberry. It will be a cinch. Or will it? Howard's relaxed, mixed-media pictures catch the nuances of the cozy, affectionate relationship between an old man and a cat. Great for beginning readers, with large print, simple words, plenty of space between lines, and just enough illustration to keep the reader from feeling overwhelmed by the text. For ages 6-9.
