Review: Mr. Putter & Tabby Fly the Plane (Mr. Putter & Tabby #5)

User Review  - Kristine Pratt - Goodreads

These earlier books are perfect - realistic and not too silly. I love the way Mr. Putter interacts with the kids, admits his liking for toys, and is such an honest and REAL character. Tabby is perfect. I would go back and re-read these early ones over and over and I'm an adult! Read full review
