Mr. Putter & Tabby Walk the Dog - Cynthia Rylant, Arthur Howard Well, Mrs. Teaberry's good dog Zeke wasn't so good in this installment of Mr. Putter & Tabby. Sadly, this installment wasn't so good either. It was ok, but it was a bit repetitive, and as I read this to the kids I sort of felt like they were waiting for the story to go somewhere. When it did finally go somewhere, I didn't like where it went, and then I was sort of left wondering if it reinforces to the kids that in order to deliver good behavior a reward must be promised first. This is a belief that I'm currently trying to disabuse my nephew of, and Mr. Putter's solution to his troubles with Zeke did not help me out there. Of course, it's also likely that the kids completely forgot about this book as soon as we finished reading it, and if that's the case, then it still doesn't warrant more than two stars.
