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.
What a Hoot!!! This was truly an awesome book. The kids and I loved this great tale of a chicken, a duck and a goose whom found zee perfect nest.. You just gotta read this book to find out how Jack the cat made zee perfect nest for the perfect egg... Jack surly got more than he bargained for..
