How long does it take to hatch a kitten? Cat isn't sure, but she would rather be snacking or napping. Join her as she looks around for a babysitter for her mysterious golden egg.

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.
