Do you like funny characters? Do you like to laugh? One day it was summer and Mr. Putter was sweating. He went inside and got water. He was still so very hot and came with a great idea to go cool. Can you guess what his idea is? You will have to read the whole story to find out if Mr. Putter ever gets cool.

I thought this book was awesome. I think Mrs. Teaberry was kind of thoughtful to make food for Mr. Putter. This reminds me of when I went on a boat with my dad for a picnic. As I read this book I felt happy because the characters are friendly with one another.

My recommendation is that this book is only for 1st to 3rd graders because theirs not difficult words in the book. The book has 37 pictures and 37 pages. Go to your library and get the book!
