Mister Bud has a great life. He has everything he needs and keeps to a schedule. Until, that is, the day when his owner brings home another dog, Zorro. Mister Bud and Zorro do not get along. They don't share well and they both are pretty grumpy. Will they ever get along?
What I thought: Now here's a story I can relate to. Dogs always act this way when you add another dog to the house and Carter has captured it perfectly from the dog's point-of-view. I like the illustrations--realistic with good lines. My favorites are Mister bud fierce about his schedule, say hello to Zorro (a stranger), nap time (both dogs), and Mister Bud and Zorro on the bed.
