Christmas is Mr. Putter's favorite time of the year. He starts thinking about Christmas presents in July. It's easy to buy gifts for the postman, the grocer, and the librarian. But he has to think very hard about a gift for his neighbor, Mrs. Teaberry. Mrs. Teaberry likes strange things. She likes coconuts that look like monkey heads and tiny dresses that fit her teapots. She even likes fruitcake.

That's it! He'll make her a good cake for Christmas, a light and airy one that won't break her toe if she drops it. He's never baked a cake before, but it should be a cinch.

Among the delightful creations of this popular Newbery Medal honoree, Mr. Putter is perhaps the most comical and endearing. Narrator John McDonough is charming in the title role. Young readers will beg to hear all the Mr. Putter series again and again.

Must-read book for kids

Mr. Putter and Tabby try to find the perfect gift for Mrs. of the funniest books in the series by Cynthia Rylant. I read all these books with the kids I taught and tutored and this was the first book I purchased after I learned I would be a grandmother! My grandson was excited when I bought it to listen to in the car! Light-hearted and fun, Mr. Putter continues on another adventure with his fine cat, Tabby!!
