Summary From Amazon
Mr. Fuzzbuster knew he was Lily’s favorite. They did everything together. Naps. Story time. Walks. And more naps. But now four more animals lived in the house.…

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.

My Thoughts
    What is your favorite color? Do you have a favorite food? What is your favorite game? Kids love to talk about favorites. I love the concept of Mr. Fuzzbuster investigating to prove that he is Lily's favorite pet, when the other four pets believe that they hold the top spot with Lily. 
    The repetitive pattern adds a bit of predictability as Mr. Fuzzbuster has to listen to Lily tell each pet that they are her favorite...(fish, lizard, bird, dog). When he is convinced that Bruiser the dog is Lily's favorite, Mr. Fuzzbuster is ready to leave the house with his tail between his legs until he remembers what Lily means to him. 
    The adorable illustrations, done with pencil, ink and digital media, will have kids talking about which character is their favorite. There is a variety of background colors and textures and page layouts that make the book visually interesting. 
    Mr. Fuzzbuster Know's He's the Favorite lends itself to some interesting classroom discussions. I can imagine kids talking about their own favorite pets or debating which pet should be Lily's favorite. 

I would highly recommend Mr. Fuzzbuster Know's He's the Favorite for kids ages 3-8.
