The Perfect Nest

The Perfect Nest by 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.
