Mr. Putter has decided to write a book--a mystery novel, to be exact. But being a writer is way more challenging than it looks. There's all that empty white paper to fill, all those tasty snacks to prepare (and eat), and then there are the naps. . . .

This delightful addition to the Mr. Putter and Tabby series is a tribute to good stories, delicious snacks, and wonderful next-door neighbors. And with its hilarious send-up of the challenges of the writing process, it's sure to become a favorite with aspiring authors of all ages.

I love this series and am every so thankful that kids do, too. I really want to be neighbors to Mr. Putter and Mrs. Teaberry. ( )

4Q- The Mr. Putter and Tabby series is generally excellent. This one is good, just lacks the subtle humor of some of the others.
5P- Kids will love this book. It is a good read for beginning readers and includes quality illustrations. ( )

When the winter storms hit, Mr. Putter decides he wants to write a mystery story. He think and thinks and thinks and comes up with a brilliant title, "The Mystery of Lighthouse Cove." His thinking wears him out and he decides to make a snack, ending his writing for the day. His second day of writing finds him distracted with so many household chores and of course, snacking and napping. All he manages to write is "Chapter One." On the third day, he writes a list of "good things" which he later shares with his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry. She finds his writing wonderful and together they go and and celebrate with vanilla shakes.
