Mr. Putter & Tabby Hit the Slope (Hardcover)
Mr. Putter and his fine cat, Tabby, like winter. But when the snow is deep outside and there’s nothing to do inside, even a cozy winter day can be a little slow. Not for long! When Mrs. Teaberry and her good dog, Zeke, pull two sleds out of the garage, the four friends head for the sledding slope for the wildest ride ever. Maybe winter is not so slow after all!

"A comforting story to curl up with on a chilly winter day, this easy reader features the large font, simple sentences, and skillful use of white space for which the series is well known." —School Library Journal "The arrangement of the simple, declarative text, with repeated words lined up, helps beginning readers decode and read fluently. Howard's pencil, watercolor, and gouache illustrations both reflect the text and provide contextual cues as well as adding to the subtle humor. Simple words can still surprise with adventure and humor. Cowabunga!" —Kirkus —
