The Perfect Nest
John Manders' Senor Don Gato has returned in the guise of greedy Jack cat who builds The Perfect Nest to attract an omelet producing hen. Alas, he attracts more than he bargained for. With a bow to Martin Waddell's Owl Babies, Catherine Friend has created three memorable babies and a less than maternal cat. This is a funny, trilingual romp through the thatch of unintended consequences. I put this one on my top 5 so far this year.
