Mog's Amazing Birthday Caper

 

Silly old forgetful Mog is one of the most endearing cat characters in books. Judith Kerr's feline fusspot is the perfect subject for a rather innovative and whimsical look at ABCs. Each page of the story is peppered with words beginning with each letter of the alphabet (though Kerr uses a bit of poetic license with some of the trickier letters, naturally). 
Rhythmic storytelling is coupled with illustrations of Mog's rather strange dreams. Do cats dream of more than just chasing mice? Find out in the book!

Charlotte's best bit: Jugs of Jelly
