“Kitty cat (and human boy stand-in) Tumford Stoutt learns a lesson about rude noises. This Tuesday, Sweet Apple Green is in for a ruckus. Tum beats his drum. He makes bubbles in his dish. He burps and giggles at the table. His parents aren't pleased, but Tum doesn't care. He likes the attention. Then in front of the Sweet Apple Guild, Tum does the unforgivable: toots the patootie trumpet. Mom and Dad put him in timeout. With a little help from readers, Tum learns not all attention is good.” —Kirkus Reviews
