Buster: The Very Shy Dog Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edna has the longest, most fantastically fluffy tail in the neighborhood. It is a sight to behold. Proud of her tail — very proud of it — Edna heads out to the neighborhood party to show it off to the new cat, who is rumored to have a fantastic tale himself. But as Edna heads off to the party, she gets a quivery feeling, as if someone is following her through the woods.

As a vain cat learns the true identity of the monster that chases her, she unexpectedly discovers friendship in her life. Beginning readers are sure to relish this fresh and funny picture book about how finding a good friend can save the day.

Synopsis:

In these three stories Buster discovers his self-worth and self-confidence and makes friends along the way. Beginning readers will relate to Busters fears and successes and will relish in their very own triumph of completing a chapter book.

Synopsis:

Buster is not a small dog, but he feels like a small dog. He feels small at crowded birthday parties. He feels small when he tries to catch balls or chase wild animals. He especially feels small next to Phoebe, a bold dog who is an ace ballcatcher, popular at parties, and seemingly unafraid of anything. In these three stories Buster discovers his self-worth and self-confidence and makes friends along the way. Beginning readers will relate to Buster's fears and his successes and will relish in their very own triumph of completing a chapter book.
