Spring has come to Fernwood Forest, and the Heartwood Hotel is all a-bustle. With Mr. Heartwood off on vacation, it's up to Mona and the rest of the staff to keep everything running smoothly. When rumors buzz of a rival hotel, Gilles is determined to prove that the Heartwood is the very best with the splashiest Spring Splash the forest has ever seen. Guests check in from near and far to compete for the Cutest Egg, the Tiniest Talent, and the Best Blossom. Newcomer Henry is all too happy to help out, making Mona start to feel unsure of her place. Does the Heartwood really need her as much as she thought? But soon there's more to worry about than whose egg has the sweetest speckles. Some decidedly uninvited guests have been drawn to the festivities. Can Mona find a way to bring everyone together in time to save them all from danger?

Readers will cheer for these kind, brave, beloved characters as they embark on their next adventure in the third book of the charmingly illustrated Heartwood Hotel series.

When Mr. Heartwood takes a break, Mona the maid feels like she needs to step up to make sure nothing falls out of line. But things are different now because Tilly's brother Henry is in the picture. He hogs Tilly's time, gets a lot of praise, and is always around. Mona finds herself growing jealous of the new squirrel.

Word reaches the Heartwood Hotel that a new hotel is opening soon, which can be bad for business. The staff needs to do something big to draw in customers and keep up with the competition. So, they decide to have a Spring Splash that will be packed with all sorts of competitions. But at the Heartwood Hotel, you never know what a season might bring, and this one has the possibility of going terribly wrong.

I love the animals and illustrations in this book. They are adorable and perfect for children. BETTER TOGETHER teaches that others can help and you don't have to be good at everything. Instead, it's better to have friends who will be there for you no matter what, especially when you're in trouble.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children starting to read chapter books and those who love animals. BETTER TOGETHER is a well-rounded and heart-warming read.
