Farmer Ray and his wife Norma are an ordinary couple who live on an ordinary farm…until something strange happens one night. Suddenly, Farmer Ray discovers something strange has happened to his cabbage crop. Bright, bold illustrations and simple text filled with humor made this a hit with my story time audience…especially when Farmer Ray and Norma have trouble knowing when this new crop is ripe and ready to be picked. There is a nice laugh-out-loud twist at the end.

This is one of the most bizarre children's book I've read. Truly. Three stars for my total astonishment.

Great children's book about wild lunar energy creating a galactic force that makes cats grow out of a farmer's crop by the thousands. The book is illustrated by a Hollywood animator and the drawings are top-notch. Your kid will love this book and grown-up cat lovers will enjoy it, too.

This is a silly book about "growing Cats" in the ground. The Farmer was certain he was growing Cabbage...but nope... It was good, but I think it might have been funnier if the plants had a cat name like Cattails or Catnip... over all an in interesting concept with nice pictures and imagination!

A unique little story about a farmer who's cabbage crop mysteriously becomes green cats from outer space.

Illustrations are fun to look at.

Alien visitations, bumper crops of kittens, farmers, what more do you need in a childrens' book?

Well, this was different-- and very clever! I shudder to think how I'd be overrun if every cat hair shed by my cats grew into another whole cat. I especially liked the illustrations of the cats growing gradually up out of the earth, and the pictures of the cats who were "picked" too soon or too late. A fun read for cat lovers!

A great and fantastically weird story about alien cats coming down one night and planting themselves in a farmer's cabbage patch. I did this for story time, had a plant pot craft. The kids really seemed to enjoy it and even loved the surprise twist ending!

Loved it! Zany and silly, it smacks of Wanda Gags Millions of Cats--for any who were fans of that bizarre dreamlike book. The illustrations are especially fresh and fun with the hint of a retro air about them.

Awesome picture book about an alien invasion of cats that grow in a farmers patch after a meteor strikes.
