"Comprising seven short, smoothly written chapters, this story offers a bit of action, a bit of humor, and the suggestion that even unappealing new experiences can be worth a try. Fresh and spirited, Howard’s pencil, watercolor, and gouache artwork brightens every page of this book from the Mr. Putter & Tabby series for beginning readers."--Booklist
