Book Description

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.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mark this one 'to read.'"--Kirkus Reviews

"Goodrich is brilliant at depicting doggy emotions, whether it is the deeply embarrassed Zorro, content Mr. Bud, or suave Dart. As in the first installment, the book is well designed, with ample white space surrounding the all-small-caps font and bright images. Whether shared one-on-one or as part of a dog-themed storytime, this book is sure to please existing fans of Mr. Bud and Zorro and create new admirers of these charming pups."--School Library Journal

"A treat for dog lovers young and old."--Booklist

Review

"Goodrich creates spot-on canine caricatures: Zorro's expressions of humiliation and dispair are priceless."--Pulishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant classic May 14, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Like Say Hello to Zorro, the first in this series, Zorro Gets an Outfit is that rare children's book that pushes into the unique realm where it appeals to adults as much as to children. Goodrich's subtle illustrations and wry wit distinguish this book as being among the very best one can find. The text is economical, funny, and the illustrations establish a rich story with the sort of skill you see in Sendak, though the style is quite different. You can't go wrong with this book, or the one that preceded it for that matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a sequel, but don't dismiss it September 18, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My goddaughter (age 2) was TOTALLY in love with the first book, Say Hello to Zorro, and when I discovered there was a sequel I was quick to snap it up--both for her, and for her parents, who had about memorized the first with all the cries of "Ag'n!" Taking into consideration that this is a sequel, it's really not bad. It lacks some of the charm of the first, but is a perfectly acceptable follow-up (and Ruby thinks it's swell, so I guess that's all that matters).

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't help but love Zorro and Mister Bud! May 25, 2014

Zorro and Mister Bud are a real treasure from a wildly talented illustrator turned fabulous children's author. The illustrations and storyline are topnotch and are a joy for children and adults alike. With a clever plot that all dog lovers will enjoy, Zorro Gets and Outfit, packs in many laugh out loud images and scenes! We relish following the wacky adventures of Zorro and Mister Bud and have introduced many friends to Carter Goodrich's wonderful children's stories. My kids ask me to read Zorro to their classes any time a parent is an invited reader at school. We hope Mr. Goodrich keeps more of his witty, beautifully drawn stories coming! Buy this book; you will not be disappointed!

Not a lot of words but very cute story. Nephews loved it and I love that it's how our family dogs act when put in a costume.
