Summary: this book is about two dogs named Zorro and Mister Bud who grow up together in an apartment. One day their owner decided that Zorro needs to get an outfit for an unexplained reason, leaving Zorro quite embarrassed until he finds another outfit wearing dog that is not as embarrassed.
Critique: this book makes a good fantasy with how it relates an everyday occurrence: the feeling of being judged, and a solution to said problem, all using the power of talking animals trying to find happiness out of a new situation. ( )

Review/Critique: Two dogs, Zorro and Mister Bud, wake up and their day is like any other, until Zorro gets a costume. All the other animals make fun of Zorro and he feels ashamed until he sees another cool dog with an outfit on. Zorro becomes proud of his outfit and shows it off infant of all the animals that made fun of him. This book is fantasy because the animals all talk to each other. ( )

This book is about a small, dog named Zorro who's owner buys him a new outfit to wear to the park one day. On the way to the park Zorro is made fun of by some other bigger dogs, but when he and the other dog who lives with him get to the park Zorro quickly makes friends with another small dog who is wearing an outfit too. This is a good book because it proses students with questions about life, being confident, and the struggles faced with bullies.
Age Appropriateness: Primary-->K-2nd grade

Zorro is so cute! He and Mr. Bud crack me up! ( )

This book is short and sweet and does a great job of opening up a conversation about using things that you can't control to your advantage. I also love the way that one can use the pictures as an example of how they add a lot more to the story. Both of these are a great lessons for any age, but this book best works for younger students.
