"Fans ofCharlotte's Web and other gentle animal stories will enjoy this charming tale."--School Library JournalWhen Burdock the barn cat sneaks into the Baxters' farmhouse kitchen to hide behind a warm stove, he overhears a sinister plot that endangers all the animals on the farm. It's up to him and his cohorts to figure out how to bust out of the barn before it's too late. Readers will fall in love with the solitary cat, the self-effacing cow, the unstoppable pig, even a wayward she-owl--all brought to life with clever dialogue, poetic descriptions, and expressive black-and-white illustrations.
