MOG THE FORGETFUL CAT BY JUDITH KERR
Every now and then I’d love to share with you one of my huge loves… Children’s Books. They speak to me, oh yes they do. The characters, the colours, the pen lines, the rhymes, the details and the media… It’s what inspired me to study Illustration. And some of them are just too good to keep to myself!).
Did you enjoy Judith Kerr’s books about Mog the cat as a child? This is a FUN book where dear old Mog often feels sorry for herself, forgetting about her cat flap and that she’s already had her supper. The phrase “Bother that cat!” is repeated several times, and I just can’t help it… This cat’s hilarious!!
Having grown up in a cat family*, I love how Mog’s personality is captured through the words and illustrations in this book. It’s a classic, one worth keeping for your kids, grand kids AND great grandkids.
*Cat Family – let me clarify. Growing up we had cats as pets. I was not raised by cats.
