“Perfect fine-feathered fun.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

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.

Catherine Friend is the author of the acclaimed memoir HIT BY A FARM: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BARN, as well as two Brand New Readers. She says she once had a duck and a chicken on her farm in southeastern Minnesota who insisted on sharing a nest. The author likes spending time at home, which is, for her,"the perfect nest."

John Manders has illustrated many children’s books, including HENRY AND THE BUCCANEER BUNNIES. He lives in Pittsburgh with his wife, two dogs, and a parrot that is fond of building nests out of cardboard (but has never laid an egg).
