Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you a fun picture book that's sure to be a hit with kids who have a pet!
To prove he’s still Lily’s favorite, Mr. Fuzzbuster will have to ask her, but will her answer surprise him? This funny, heartwarming story is for every child who has ever wondered if there’s a favorite in the house. -- Two Lions
MR. FUZZBUSTER KNOWS HE'S THE FAVORITE by Stacy McAnulty and illustrated by Edward Hemingway is an adorable picture book. The story is pretty cute and the illustrations are the perfect complement to the fun story! I have a feeling that many young kids are going to relate to this book.
Mr. Fuzzbuster is pretty darn confident that he's Lily's favorite. After all, they've been together for a very long time; and they done a lot together like taking naps, taking walks, and even story time. However, four more pets have arrived since Mr. Fuzzbuster; and maybe, just maybe, Mr. Fuzzbuster needs a little affirmation.
Mr. Fuzzbuster asks Lily which pet is her favorite. Lily is no dummy and assures each animal in turn that they are her favorite bird, fish, iguana, etc. Mr. Fuzzbuster is feeling pretty good with his odds of being the one and only favorite, when Lily tells him that he's her favorite... cat!
MR. FUZZBUSTER KNOWS HE'S THE FAVORITE is too cute, and I know it would have been a hit with my kids because they were always saying the other one was the "favorite." Heck -- they still say that! The story is sweet and you can't help but root for Mr. Fuzzbuster; however, there is a little twist at the end of the book that will readers (and Mr. Fuzzbuster) guessing!
I found the illustrations in MR. FUZZBUSTER KNOWS HE'S THE FAVORITE to be quite adorable too! The big eyes on the various pets are very cute, and Mr. Fuzzbuster's facial expressions are laugh out loud funny. The colors are also bright and will keep both children and their parents entertained.
Overall, MR. FUZZBUSTER KNOWS HE'S THE FAVORITE is a very fun book geared towards three to seven year olds. Highly recommended!
