Review: Mog’s Christmas

December 2, 2016


It’s Christmas and poor Mog doesn’t know what to make of all the activity.  She’s scared and hides on the roof and nothing her family does gets her to come down.  Her family’s sad because they miss Mog and are worried about her.  When she comes crashing down the chimney, it feels like a Christmas gift.

MOG’S CHRISTMAS by Judith Kerr was first published in 1976 and it’s stood the test of time very well.  It’s the second in a series of seventeen featuring the adorable Mog, who young children will adore.  Christmas activities are starting at Mog’s house and the change in her routine is scaring her.  Her family tries to reassure her but it doesn’t help so she runs and hides, making everyone sad.  I’m happy to say that things end happily for Mog and her family.  I think a lot of young children will be able to relate to Mog’s feelings and will be reassured by the happy ending.

My copy of MOG’S CHRISTMAS came with a fun CD that contains two tracks.  The first track is an enhanced version of the story, complete with sound effects, expertly read by Geraldine McEwan and a cast and the second track is toned for a read-along.

MOG’S CHRISTMAS is a great book to get all of the members of your family into the Christmas spirit.

    Adorable! I love the idea of a series of books about a cat who is part of a family, and precious to them. Thanks for sharing.

    I haven’t heard of this series. But it looks like a good one for young kids.

    How adorable! Isn’t she the author that wrote the seal story based on her father?
