Reissue of the first story about everyone's favourite family cat, Mog. Celebrate the 40th Anniversary with this mini edition.
`Bother that cat!'
Mog always seems to be in trouble. She forgets that she has a cat flap and she forgets that she has already eaten her supper. But, one night, Mog's forgetfulness comes in very handy...
Judith Kerr OBE was born in Berlin. Her family left Germany in 1933 to escape the rising Nazi party, and came to England. She studied at the Central School of Art and later worked as a scriptwriter for the BBC.
Judith married the celebrated screenwriter Nigel Kneale in 1954. She left the BBC to look after their two children, who inspired her first picture book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea. Published in 1968 and never out of print in the fifty years since, it has become a much-loved classic and perennial bestseller.
Judith celebrated her 95th birthday in 2018, was awarded the Booktrust Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, and continues to write and illustrate children's books from her home in London.
