Fashion goes to the dogs in this lovable follow-up to Say Hello to Zorro!
Mister Bud and Zorro get along just great. They wake up together, have walk time together, and take naps together. But something is about to interrupt their schedule: Zorro has to wear a fancy outfit.
Zorro is embarassed, mortified, aghast. Mr. Bud tries to cheer him up, but nothing works. Everyone makes fun of Zorro, and he refuses to participate in chew-on-a-stick time. Mister Bud doesn’t know what to do.
But when another dog—a very cool dog—shows up in an outfit and does amazing tricks and beats all the other dogs in a race, Zorro discovers that wearing clothes might not be so bad after all.
Everything is back on schedule.
Mister Bud, a mutt, and Zorro the pug had an antagonistic relationship in Say Hello to Zorro! but now they are amiable companions. It's an ordinary day when something terrible happens: the dogs' owner surprises Zorro with an outfit that makes him look like a cutesy version of Batman. Mortified, Zorro begrudgingly accompanies Mister Bud on a walk, as neighborhood dogs and a cat jeer at his new look. With the help of a third dog, though, Zorro's self-confidence is restored. Goodrich creates spot-on canine caricatures: Zorro's expressions of humiliation and despair are priceless. Ages 4 8.
