Mog on Fox Night
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 10:57 AM Labels: HarperCollins Children's Books, Judith Kerr, Mog on Fox Night
This is the fourth Mog book we've read and Charlotte shows no signs of getting fed up with this egg-obsessed cat.
Mog is having a tough time at home, and doesn't like the tasty fish or cat food that's laid out for her supper every night. Mog wants eggs, but Mog's family aren't too keen on her scoffing through a dozen a day.
Mog sulks and during her mopey sojourn in the garden, Mog sees a Fox.
The rest of the book details Mog's attempts to avoid her Foxy invaders as they take over the garden, and soon also make their way into Mog's house.
A fun-packed tale that oozes quality just like all the Judith Kerr / Mog books.
Charlotte's best bit: The fact that Bunny (Mog's pet from another Mog book) makes a cameo appearance.
Daddy's favourite bit: Mog's rather surreal dream about Mr Johnson stealing all the world's eggs and putting them in a bin bag.
