Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Judith Kerr's Mog the Forgetful Cat is back in a 30th anniversary edition. Mog's absentminded ways get her into trouble. For instance, she forgets that she has a cat flap in the kitchen door, so she squashes the flowers in the window box trying to get the Thomas family's attention. But when her forgetfulness helps to catch a burglar, Mog becomes a hero. Cartoonish drawings capture Mog's eccentric ways and the warmth of the Thomases. ; Feb. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, but left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape the Nazis. They arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. There she met her husband Nigel Kneale and they had two children together; Judith wrote her first picture ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ for them, which has gone on to become a much-loved classic, as well as many other titles including the timeless ‘Mog the Forgetful Cat’. She was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to children’s literature and holocaust education, and celebrates her 90th birthday in 2013.

    Wonderful Childrens Book

    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.

    Mog, the Forgetful Cat

    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.
