From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Mr. Fuzzbuster, a most lovely cat, is Lily's favorite. He knows he is, because "they'd been together since he fit in a teacup and she fit in diapers." Unfortunately, he now has competition—Fishy Face (a fish), King (a lizard), Feathers (a bird), and Bruiser (a most ferocious canine barker) all believe that they are her favorite, and Mr. Fuzzbuster is out to prove that he is her top choice by asking her directly in a personal note. Text repetition creates a pattern easily followed by young readers as Lily speaks to her pets by name and selects each as her favorite (i.e., her favorite fish, her favorite lizard, her favorite bird, and her favorite dog). In the digital art, the large eyes of her animal friends draw readers' attention in focused close-ups or rooms of streaming sunlight, and varied fonts emphasize text. A suggested general purchase for all libraries, this book speaks to the close relationships in families (and between pets). The one truth everyone can agree on is that Lily is everyone's favorite. VERDICT A fair addition for storytimes and family reads.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX
“This tale of who’s the preferred pet will charm animal lovers of all stripes.” —Kirkus Reviews
“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.” —Publishers Weekly
“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.” —Booklist
“With beautiful, colorful illustrations, Mr. Fuzzbuster and little Lily come to life in this sweet book…The story is fun and sweet, pointing out to little ones that people can love more than one pet. What an excellent way to broach the subject of having enough room in your heart as a parent for more than one child! The ending is a bit cheeky, and parents will laugh just like the children. A great addition to any child’s library—especially if they have a beloved pet.” —Children’s Book Review
