One of my favorite childhood books. My Dad and I read this book so many times together, that even now (I am now in my twenties) we can both still quote the book. A must have for any children's library.
The story of Mog was my children's favorite bedtime tale when they were little, which was 30 years ago! I was thrilled to find it after all these years in the board book form which we didn't have then. The pictures are exactly the same, but there is one small change in the text from the version we read regularly. Instead of the British expression "Bother that cat!", our old book used the more American expression "Drat that cat!" In any case, this is a delightful book for children. I feel that reading Mog to my kids contributed to their understanding and love of all things feline. I've bought a copy each for my son and two daughters to share with their children.
i loved this book as a child and kids are still loving it over 40 years later!
