Mr. Putter loves toys. He’s old and he knows he shouldn’t love them anymore. But he does. His fine cat, Tabby, however, does not. She’s especially bothered by toys that fly. So when Mr. Putter brings home a little toy biplane that’s supposed to really fly, he and Tabby are in for quite an adventure.
Mr. Putter has never outgrown his love of toys so when he sees a remote control airplane in the toy store, well, the urge is just too great. He buys it. After a bit of a struggle, he finally gets it off the ground. Tabby, who has been quite apprehensive, finally begins to relax because she knows her friend is having a wonderful time. Mr. Putter shares his plane with the neighborhood kids and finally gives it away to a shy little boy who reminds him of himself. It's a delightful easy-to-read story that presents a grandparent-aged character in positive light.
