In Papillon Goes to the Vet, we're reintroduced to Papillon, as he accidentally falls ill. Miss Tilly takes him to the vet, but it's uncertain if he'll ever be able to float again!
Like the first book in the series, Kang makes Papillon's journey comes alive with her vibrant, delightful drawings. With just a few pen lines, you can practically feel Papillon's concern, as he realizes he can no longer float, and is reluctantly left at the vet's overnight.
But in a way that Papillon only can, he rallies at the change in circumstances. Kang does a nice job of emphasizing how one can find the best even in in challenging situations, and how that type of positivity is often infectious for those who are around them.
The story ends happily, with Papillon headed back home, but having left both his newfound friends and readers, a little wiser and happier. Coupled with Kang's trademark drawings, this is a delightful book. Highly recommend.
