Book review - Mog the Forgetful Cat by Judith Kerr

This year marks the 90th birthday of children's author Judith Kerr OBE, and to celebrate her classic book Mog the Forgetful Cat (affiliate link) has been published in a special hardback edition. Mog the Forgetful Cat was first published in 1970, and I remember it from my own childhood. I've enjoyed reading The Tiger that Came to Tea by Judith Kerr with Harry, and I have loved sharing this story about Mog with him too.

The story is about Mog the cat, who is very forgetful. She often forgets things like how to get back into the house, or whether or not she has eaten her dinner, and this means that the rest of the family find her rather annoying. She always seems to be in trouble, until one night her forgetfulness comes in very useful!

I love the classic illustrations in the book with their depictions of milk floats, a black and white television and period furniture. There's plenty to talk about as you go along, and plenty to smile about too. A lovely book to share with your child!

I received a copy of Mog the Forgetful Cat to review, links are Amazon affiliate links.
