Many happy returns to Mog the Forgetful Cat who has been delighting readers for forty years. Brilliant author-illustrator Judith Kerr’s timeless stories about Mog, the cat who has a habit of forgetting everything, charm readers young and old. Toddlers adore the loveable and expressive cat whose unreliable behaviour often brings surprising results! From board books to stunning gift editions, the many stories about Mog capture the heart of all who come across her. This is the paperback 40th anniversary edition and it even has a flocked cover.
Here is the new cover and format reissue of this classic story about everyone's favourite family cat! Mog always seems to be in trouble because she is such a very forgetful cat. She forgets that she has a cat flap and she forgets when she has already eaten her supper. But, one night, when an uninvited visitor turns up at the house, Mog's forgetfulness comes in very handy!
