Title: Mister Bud Wears the Cone
Author: Carter Goodrich
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers
Date: 2014

Okay, this story really isn't about Mister Bud.  The poor guy simply had a 'hot spot' that bothered him so he had to wear a cone to keep from aggravating it. This story is really about Zorro, Mister Bud's jealous little so-called best 'friend' (with an interesting five o' clock shadow) whom taunted, teased and even tattled on his frustrated and hapless old roommate.

When Mister Bud spoiled the coveted regular scheduled walk-and-a-biscuit because of the cone, Zorro thought he should just take things into his own paws and get his own biscuits while the owner was away.  And Zorro also thought it was fun to taunt Mister Bud by taking Mister Bud's toy and running away with it, causing Mister Bud to chase him and knock over a lamp with his cone.  Zorro thought Mister Bud was going to be in big trouble, and took great pleasure in that, but when their owner finally returned home....

Moral of the story:
If you want to know who is really stealing the biscuits, get a nanny cam.

The Art: Soft, blended colors and patterns.  

A totally entertaining book!
Available at Chapters/Indigo
