She seeks help from her baffled friend Dog, a crow, a koel, and a turtle, for as we all know, it takes a village to raise an egg. Aparna Karthikeyan’s delightfully humorous prose is complemented by Christine Kastl’s art that has an almost three-dimensional quality to it. Together, they take you on a feline adventure quite unlike any other. The book includes an unforgettable informative note for kids about companion animal care.
"Warm and sweetly told tale introducing multiple concepts of birth, nurturing, friendships and the Christian tradition of celebrating Easter...Wonderful [addition] to any book collection." ~Jaya Bhattacharji Rose - Confessions of an Avid Bibliophile
"The artwork has an exotic feel and draws the reader into the story with color and expression. A cute story with an important message for pet health...This is a good choice to share with children at Easter and to teach them that chocolate is dangerous for pets to eat." ~Youth Services Book Review
"As soon as I read the blurb, I had to find out what happened next. Somehow the storyline itself was even funnier and more amusing than my already-high expectations. The plot twists only grew better over time, especially once Cat realized that her attempts to hatch a kitten weren’t going as well as she’d hoped they would. While it was written for preschoolers, there were several humorous moments that appealed to me as an adult reader, and it all started with the thought of a kitten growing in an egg...Cat’s Egg was a creative, heartwarming tale that I’d recommend to readers of all ages." ~Long and Short Reviews
The illustrations are well done. They emit wonderful emotions and are kid-friendly. They are created from the perspective of the animals involved in the story. This heartwarming tale with a surprise twist at the end will quickly become a family favourite. I highly recommend it. It is very creatively done and it made me laugh. We need more books like "Cat's Egg!" ~Baby Bookworms
