Catherine Friend and illustrated by John Manders is a fun book. Jack the cat wants an egg so he can make an omelet. He decides to build a nest to attract a chicken which would result in getting the egg he wants. What Jack didn't count on was a chicken, a duck, and a goose all wanting the nest. Each lays an egg in the nest, but before Jack can figure out how to get the mothers off the eggs, they hatch. Children will probably enjoy this book because of the ironic ending...Jack ends up taking care of those three babies.

Susan Meissner this week. In 1938, Audrey and Violet become roommates, then friends, while working in Hollywood. Both are looking for something more to their lives. As their friendship grows, they change in ways that neither of them could have guessed. The setting of the story also includes the filming of the movie Gone With the Wind, so if you are a fan of historical Hollywood or the movie, you would enjoy this story. I would not rank this as my favorite by Meissner, but it is worth reading and think it would be good for a book club, too.
