Goodrich creates spot-on canine caricatures: Zorro’s expressions of humiliation and despair are priceless.
-Publishers Weekly

Synopsis

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.

He is able to capture great emotional depth in his canines, from the sorrowful slope of Zorro’s shoulders as he dons a cape for the first time, to the teeth-bearing joy of Mister Bud.
