This Librarian's Quick Picks: Mister Bud Wears the Cone!

Mister Bud Wears the Cone!
by Carter Goodrich
Simon & Schuster (June 3, 2014)
Picture Book


Wearing the cone is no fun; Mister Bud can’t reach the biscuits or drink from his water dish. And Zorro? He can’t help but have some fun at Mister Bud’s expense.

 Why You'll Love It:
  • Goodrich’s watercolors excel at squat doggie bodies, especially the abstract shape of Bud’s faceless conehead.
  • A succinct, masterfully paced text is filled with humorous taunts from Zorro and hilarious descriptions of Mister Bud's misery.
  • A great addition for kids looking for a story about dogs and for a canine-centered read-aloud.
  • Pug. Need I say more???

Who should read it:

Great for grades K-2.
