From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1—Albert wants to prove that his lovable pet monster is the best pet in the world, so he enters Sidney in a televised competition. The categories are hairiest warts, highest hover, most parasites, smelliest farts, and hottest breath. Whichever creature receives the most points will win. Sidney does terribly and loses every round. Although Albert is initially embarrassed, he realizes that some contests aren't worth winning, and, in the end, he's happy to have such a great pet and to set a new record for "Worst in Show." The pencil and paint cartoons are digitally colored and depict a television studio brimming with activity and details. Overall, a fun and pleasing tale.—Laura Hunter, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
