Mr. Putter and Tabby Stir the Soup

Mr. Putter and Tabby Stir the Soup. (Mr. Putter and Tabby #12) Cynthia Rylant. Illustrated by Arthur Howard. 2003. 44 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence:  Mr. Putter and his fine cat, Tabby, lived in an old house with an old porch and an old swing and lots of old things inside. Mr. Putter and Tabby didn't mind old things. They were old, too, so they felt right at home.

Premise/plot: Mr. Putter loves soup, but he never seems to have all the ingredients he wants to make soup all at the same time. And the one day it seems that he does, well, his old stove, Bessie, gives out. What's he to do? Who will come to his rescue?

My thoughts:  I enjoyed this one! I too love a good bowl of soup. And this early chapter book is funny. Mr. Putter ends up going to Mrs. Teaberry's house to cook his soup. Zeke, well, he has two sides to him: a good side and a terribly naughty side. Guess which Zeke Mr. Putter encounters?!
