Say Hello to Zorro!

Say Hello to Zorro!
by Carter Goodrich
Simon & Schuster, 2011. Unpaged. Picture Book.

Mister Bud has the dog's Life of Riley--his own house, bed, toys, and his own way and time of doing things. Wake-up time is followed every day by naptime, watch and wait time, dog biscuit time, greet and make a fuss time. But suddenly . . . a stranger! "Mister Bud, say hello to Zorro!" Mister Bud doesn't want to say hello to Zorro, a remarkably plug-ugly little mutt with piranha teeth and a hideous underbite. Zorro doesn't like Mister Bud messing with his toys, either. But by and by they discover what they both love most: a schedule. Then they can be friends. Carter Goodrich's witty text and even funnier pictures make this story of two ugly, set-in-their ways dogs a treasure, even for people who don't care for picky pooches.
