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.

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.

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!
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 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!
This book was about a farmer and his wife that had a farm. on day the farmer got up to check on his crops and he noticed he was growing cats. Soon the cats where everywhere so they had to give they away. this would be a good book to teach kids about farms. the pictures in this book are done with ink.
