Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best book series for early readers The Mr. Putter books are a joy to read over and over. The text flows easily, the repetition never strained. My 6 year old son loved the books so much he insisted on reading them himself (even though he is not learning to read in English). The stories are funny and touching. They introduce old age and human frailty realistically and gently, without cloying.
