Fat Cat and Baby Bird is a picture book text beautifully illustrated by Grant Snow. Jill Eggleton explores what happens when a character with ill intentions gets to know its intended victim.
Fat Cat had been watching Mama Bird sitting on her eggs.
He knew bird babies would be here soon, so he sharpened his claws.
“Mice are nice,” thought Fat Cat.
“But birds are best.
Baby birds straight from the nest!”
