Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Probably every child with one or more siblings wonders at some point who, exactly, is the favorite in the family. This story puts the mystery into pet terms. In a household with one cat, one goldfish, one parrot, one king lizard, and one dog, who does their owner, a girl named Lily, like the best? The cat, Mr. Fuzzbuster, knows he's Lily's favorite; after all, he's been with Lily since he fit in a teacup and she fit in diapers. But four other animals have since joined the menagerie. A riotous double-page spread shows a stage on which each animal declares that it is Lily's favorite. Mr. Fuzzbuster observes Lily closely, and suspense builds as she says to each creature, You're my favorite . . . But favorite what? The ensuing page-turns reveal quick thinking on Lily's part so that none of her pets feels underappreciated. The boisterous illustrations, rendered in pencil, ink, and digital media, offer a dramatic accompaniment to the story, while the ending gives readers a nice expectation upset.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "McAnulty (Beautiful) puts a high-spirited spin on kids' fascination with favorites in a story starring Mr. Fuzzbuster, a cat determined to stake his claim as his owner's most beloved pet. The two have been inseparable ever "since he fit in a teacup and she fit in diapers," but the cat has competition for her attention and affection, now that a goldfish, bird, lizard, and dog have joined the household. Determined to settle matters, Mr. Fuzzbuster writes Lily a note ("Dear Lily, Who is your favorite? Please decide"), after which she tactfully reassures each animal that it is her favorite-of its species. Working in a mix of digital and traditional media, Hemingway (Field Guide to the Grumpasaurus) makes the most of a fairly scant plot, capturing the black cat's seesawing emotions through big, blue eyes that reflect his smugness, trepidation, and elation. A closing zinger-is it possible that Lily's "favorite" isn't a pet at all?-suggests that Mr. Fuzzbuster's need to be #1 remains undiminished. Ages 3-7.
