Cynthia Rylant’s 19th Mr. Putter & Tabby book has all the sly, sweet humor that has made the series a huge success. In Mr. Putter & Tabby Clear the Decks, Mr. Putter and his fine cat Tabby are itchy. Not because of fleas, but because it’s hot, they’re bored, and they’re out of orangesicles. So when their neighbor Mrs. Teaberry suggests a sightseeing cruise, they’re excited about an adventure. The boat makes them feel free! Plus they get orangesicles! But when it’s time to go home, there’s a little problem with Mrs. Teaberry’s good dog Zeke.
