The Perfect Nest - Catherine Friend

This cat is in search for the perfect omelet. So how do you get the perfect omelet but you make the perfect nest, lure the sucker chicken and grab the egg when she leaves, right? This cat had quite the surprise when not only a chicken but a duck and goose all claim the nest as their own and won't leave. What's a cat to do? He tries everything from calling "Fire!" and then he tells them there is another perfect nest in the barn nearby. Well, the greedy fowl all leave and he is left with three delightful looking eggs...until they hatch. Then he finds out the meaning of the perfect nest.

Truly a book with flamboyant characters and a great storyline.
