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 ("ï¿1/2Caramba!"), but so do a duck ("Sacrï¿1/2 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.

I LOVED this book! It's a really funny book and it made me laugh a lot. I'm still saying the silly phrases :)

One of my favorite read-alouds for a springtime storytime, especially for an egg or new baby theme. The large illustrations (especially the ones of Jack the Cat's various expressions) make this a great read-aloud for classrooms and library audiences.

Great story! Its fun to read because each of the characters (chicken, duck, goose) has a distinctive style of voice. It also has good lessons about sharing and family.
