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.

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.
