Book of the Week: Say Hello to Zorro

Say Hello to Zorro by Carter Goodrich

Published: 2011 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Reasons why I liked this book, and chose it as Book of the Week:

From the end papers readers will be able to tell the kinds of personalities the two main characters – Mr. Bud and Zorro – have. One’s fiesty (Zorro) the other is more chill (Mr. Bud).

I love how this book shows that opposites really do attract.

It shows that all living things – human or animal – have their own unique schedules. Showing we are all set in our ways and don’t always love change.

This book gives non-dog owners a glimpse into the life of a dog. Which according to Mr. Bud is sleeping, going out for walks, eating, waiting for greet and fuss time, and of course sleeping some more. Oh, the life!

Zorro looks like on ticked off pug when we first meet him.

Mr. Bud does NOT like his routine interrupted. But really, who does?!

I love how this book shows how sometime one dog may get more attention than the other, but that doesn’t mean that one dog is loved more than the other.

Zorro is a bit of a toy hog.

Mr. Bud may be older, but he certainly has no problem standing up for himself.

I think this book illustrates the importance of compromising and the importance of sharing.

Friends can come in all shapes, sizes, and dispositions. And this book shows that friends can be made anywhere, and at the most unexpected time.

Sometimes doing something with a friend is just more fun … like going for long walks.

This book shows the importance of acceptance. And than we shouldn’t judge someone superficially.

Even though Mr. Bud and Zorro or friends, they still squabble. It’s a realistic portrayal of relationships.

Dog lovers will fall in love with this book.

There’s a follow-up to Say Hello to Zorro.

The writing is simple. But really makes a statement.

The illustrations are soft, alluring, and makes the writing pop!

This was a really fun book to read. It confirms I’m a dog kind of person.

The front of the book features an illustration of both Mr. Bud and Zorro, front view, while the back shows the two characters from the back! I think that attention to detail makes this an awesome read that both children and adults will love.

Mr. Bud and Zorro made me laugh a lot.
