It’s the perfect read-aloud! A flustered cat is on the verge of crying fowl in a farmyard story that will crack kids up.
Jack the cat is building the perfect nest. It’s bound to attract the perfect chicken, who will lay the perfect egg, which will make the perfect omelet. And sure enough, a chicken shows up ("¡Caramba!"), but so do a duck ("Sacré bleu!") and a goose ("Great balls of fire!"). Feathers get ruffled — and Jack gets much more than breakfast — in a funny tale rich in detail with a sweet final twist.

Borrowed this book from the library one week and ended up reading it 3 times before we actually returned it. Glad to have found it through the Barnes and Noble website. Great addition to our home library!
We were having a book fair at our school and out of all the books to choose from, this one was my favorite. I loved the characters and the sweet sentiment of the story. This book delights children of all ages.
