What's Your Favorite Favorite? (Ballet Cat #3)
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
Series: Ballet Cat

Ballet Cat and her cousin Goat are preparing a show for Grandma. Each is trying to outdo the other--Ballet Cat with an elaborate dance routine (of course), and Goat with his amazing (amazingly lame, that is) magic tricks. Neither act goes off quite as planned, but it doesn't matter . . . because Grandma falls asleep during the performance! Oh well, at least Ballet Cat and Goat learn how to cooperate. (But Ballet Cat cooperates better!)

While not the funniest addition to the series or to the genre, this latest outing should please fans of Ballet Cat.

School Library Journal

K-Gr 2--While Ballet Cat puts together a dance program for Grandma, Goat (aka The Great Goatini) prepares a magic show. According to Ballet Cat, ballet is Grandma's favorite. According to Goat, magic is Grandma's FAVORITE favorite. A battle of the wills ensues between the pair as they take turns displaying their talents. Goat's less than stellar magic skills provide humor, as do the facial expressions. When Grandma arrives, each one tries to impress her and best the other. When Grandma is asked which performance is her FAVORITE favorite, she saves the day by avoiding the question with the suggestion of ice cream. With neon-bright pages, equally colorful speech bubbles, deadpan humor, and the fun series format, this offering is sure to resonate with beginning readers, who will relate to the competition for a loved one's attention.
