About the Author:

CYNTHIA RYLANT has written nearly one hundred books for young people, and her novel Missing May received the Newbery Medal. She lives in Portland, Oregon.

ARTHUR HOWARD is the illustrator of the popular Mr. Putter & Tabby series. He has also written and illustrated five picture books of his own, including The Hubbub Above. He lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–On a cold, snowy day, Mr. Putter decides to write a mystery novel. He has everything an author needs–"a soft chair, a warm fire, and a good cat"–except for an idea for the plot. After coming up with a title, he is ready for a break (he "spent three minutes on his title and four hours on his snack"). Then, of course, it's time to take a nap. This happens for three days and finally Mr. Putter decides to write a list of "Good Things" ("Yellow cats," "Cinnamon toast," etc.) instead of a mystery. When he finishes his masterpiece, he takes it next door to his friend, Mrs. Teaberry, who gives it a rave review. In this accessible easy-to-read book, Rylant provides all of the right ingredients: a sense of humor, a believable depiction of a realistic situation, and a true understanding of friendship. Vibrant pencil, watercolor, and gouache illustrations reflect the warm relationship between the man and his pet; whether Mr. Putter is making a cheese ball or staring into space while awaiting inspiration, Tabby is close by, providing companionship and support. Fans of the series as well as newcomers will welcome this story.–Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
