Mister Bud Wears the Cone

Mister Bud Wears the Cone by Carter Goodrich is a nominee for the 2016-2017 South Carolina Picture Book Award.

Young readers first met Mister Bud and Zorro in Say Hello to Zorro! and Zorro Gets an Outfit. In Mister Bud Wears the Cone, this terrific twosome is back with another tale of dog life.

It all starts with a “bad hot spot.” Mister Bud has a boo-boo, and the only way to keep him from making it worse is to treat it with ointment and put this poor pup in the “cone of shame.” Neither Mister Bud nor Zorro is happy with the situation.

Zorro doesn’t like that his schedule has been disrupted, and he’s not thrilled that Mister Bud is getting so much attention. As for Mister Bud, the cone is no picnic for him either. He can’t reach his treats or water bowl, he can’t see Zorro when they’re playing, and he runs into things when chasing after Zorro. It’s a mess.

Discover how both Mister Bud and Zorro handle the cone–and the horrible disruption to their normal lives–when you read Mister Bud Wears the Coneby Carter Goodrich!
