“Buster was a happy dog.
He had everything he could ever want-until one day,
when his owner brought home a big box.”
hoped there would be juicy steaks or fancy cheeses or spicy sausages in
the box. But inside was something Buster did not want. And that
something was a cat named Betty.
Buster is a 2004 Bank Street – Best Children’s Book of the Year.
Buster is a charming picture book about a dog that was perfectly happy until his owner brings home a cat. In order to escape from the cat, Buster runs away.
It is an adorable tale of friendship and learning to adjust to new situations, even if we don’t like them at first. Whimsical and bright illustrations make this a fun book just as charming in the visual aspect.
