Editorial Reviews

Elderly Mr. Putter has mixed emotions about elderly Mrs. Teaberry's ideas, which are sometimes rather peculiar, involving "running fast or wearing feathers." But this time her suggestion of a train ride, with their respective pets in tow, seems perfect. Unfortunately, the ticket agent isn't enthusiastic: "Pets can't go on trains." Is this the end of what could be a wonderful day? Certainly not. Mr. Putter comes up with a mischievous idea of his own. As in their previous books together, Rylant and Howard accomplish a lot in a few pages--good comedy, good characterizations (wonderfully depicted in Howard's sprightly art), and a nicely controlled vocabulary, all of which combine to make this a delightful easy-to-read choice.
