About the Author

Catherine Friend is the author of the acclaimed memoir HIT BY A FARM: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BARN, as well as two Brand New Readers. She says she once had a duck and a chicken on her farm in southeastern Minnesota who insisted on sharing a nest. The author likes spending time at home, which is, for her,"the perfect nest."

John Manders has illustrated many childrens books, including HENRY AND THE BUCCANEER BUNNIES. He lives in Pittsburgh with his wife, two dogs, and a parrot that is fond of building nests out of cardboard (but has never laid an egg).

I picked this book to read to a kindergarden class and they absolutely loved it. The illustrations are colorful and fun and the kids enjoyed the different accents used by the characters. It was a "Read it again! Read it again!" situation.
