Mog the Forgetful Cat
Author and Illustrator: Judith Kerr
BUY – Mog the Forgetful Cat
This timeless series for 17 books begins here with ‘Mog the Forgetful Cat’.
Everyone knows a cat like Mog, endearing friendly and but not too bright. You will fall in love with this wide faced tabby who’s forgetful nature leads her into trouble and unwitting to triumph over a burglar.
The clean illustrations are mainly drawn on white backgrounds, with the expressive faces almost telling the story by themselves.
The story has some emotional parts which younger readers may be sensitive to at first.
However realistic these moments may seem the story moves on quickly and the bad dream and sad feelings are quickly forgotten. Even the burglar shares a cup of tea with the family until the policeman has arrived.
Children will feel for Mog as she gets into trouble for doing things that she didn’t mean to do to be naughty. In the end though she is still well loved and appreciated.
Anne Judith Kerr has created both enduring picture books such as the Mog series and The Tiger Who Came To Tea and acclaimed novels for older readers.
