Overview

Mister Bud is a dog of routine. He has wake up time, nap time, rest time, dinner time, etc. And everyone knows to follow his schedule.

Then disaster strikes. A stranger comes home at "make a fuss time" and throws everything off! Zorro is little bit bossy and Mister Bud wants nothing to do with him. But when the dogs discover they like the same things (like chasing the cat and napping), everything becomes more fun. As long as everyone follows the schedule.

This cute book shows the reader how sharing thew same schedule after being just the number one can be fun and more delightful. Bud realizes that sharing with Zorro the same activities was better than being by himself. I particularly liked the illustrations on this book. they are very expressive and they enhance the story in a way that sometimes you don't even need to read the text to figure it out was is happening in the story.

Summary: This is the storyof a dog who was #1 until the new dog, Zorro arrives. He is suddenly forced to share all sorts of things and doesn't like this at all. In the end, he learns that having Zorro around makes things more fun.Genre: Picture BookPersonal Reflection: I really enjoy this style of illustration. I would read this book jsut for the pictures alone and I could see this being a good bedtime story because the pictures are so cute and expressive. Concept: I think most kids have dealt with a similiar situation of all of a sudden having siblings or not being wanted by their siblings but it's important to go through that journey so they can come out the other side and love their new family.

I think this is an irresistible book for a dog lover. Goodrich obviously knows dogs and portrays them beautifully both in words and pictures. The message of the book is that change can be good, and it is charmingly written and illustrated. You don't need kids to love it.Carter Goodrich is an award-winning artist, lead character designer for the movie Despicable Me, and designer for several other animated films. This is a book that I decided to buy after getting it out of the library. I have no higher praise.

Love this book. I will go and buy a copy for my collection! A story about two dogs not liking change yet when realizing that they both had the same schedule they became friends and enjoyed their schedules even more because they were together.

This book is SO funny and looks just like the relationship between our large and small dog. It is my daughter's new favorite.

     It’s always hard when your parents bring home a new sibling...or when your entire existence is upset with an addition that you clearly weren't’t expecting. That’s exactly the situation that poor Bud is in when his family brings home a new dog named Zorro!        Used to his schedule, Bud is a very particular pup. He knows when he sleeps, he has specific times for his outside excursions, and he greets his humans in a certain way. One day his family brings home a new dog who upsets everything he ever has done. Zorro is a bit onery too, and likes his way too. Yet as the two dogs get to know one another, they both realize that sometimes two are better than one, even at dinnertime!       A creative and cute story perfect for children who are getting new sibling or even for families who may be combining children, I found myself laughing out loud at poor Bud. He was completely over having a new dog in the house. Great illustrations and a perfect story for read alouds, I can easily see this being a favorite with kids. Short simple sentences make it a great choice for early readers and lets face it, its just plain funny. Heck, I’m almost 30 and I loved it! I’m gonna go beg for more books by Carter Goodrich now!

This tale of Mister Bud and Zorro learning to share housespace is hilarious, especially if you have dogs of your own. Carter Goodrich (lead character designer for "Despicable Me") shows his expertise in bringing the characters alive with awesome illustrations that enhance the humor elements of this story. Definite thumbs-up!
