Buster, the Very Shy Dog

by Lisze Bechtold

Published by Houghton Mifflin, 1999
48 pages
ISBN: 0-395-85008-8

Ages 4 - 7

Three short stories to share aloud or for newly independent readers offer a lovable, wholly appealing character with whom many children will be able to relate. Buster is a big dog who feels very small. "Most people met Buster by accident." That's because Buster usually hides when there are strangers around. But even though he lacks confidence, Buster has qualities that make him special, as each of the stories reveals. Through the fresh and funny text and warm, whimsical illustrations, author/artist Lisze Bechtold reveals the brave heart of her gentle canine character. CCBC categories: Easy Fiction.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
