Reviews

PreS-K-- The story of a cat named Mog who forms a deep attachment to a toy rabbit. The pictures are done in bright colored pencil and marker, with cartoon-styled characterizations. Mog is given a wide range of facial expressions and typical cat movements. The humorous story can easily be read by younger independent readers, as well as read aloud. This is an average picture book of average quality. There are more appealing books about cats, including Sebastian: the Tale of the Curious Kitten (Knopf, 1987) by Vanessa Julian-Ottie, Hot-Air Henry (Morrow, 1981) by Mary Calhoun, and Roger's Umbrella (Dutton, 1982) by Daniel Pinkwater. Mog and Bunny is missing some of the warmth, closeness, and affection that is seen between pets and children as in Norma Simon's Oh, That Cat! (1986) and Where Does My Cat Sleep (1982; o.p., both Albert Whitman). --Evelyn Squillari, Clark County Library District, Las Vegas

Praise for Mog the Forgetful Cat: 'Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!' Choice Magazine 'A lovely book for all Mog-fanciers' The Observer Praise for Goodbye Mog: 'Kerr's warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic' Financial Times 'Believable, amusing and moving' Nursery World 'A supremely sensitive story' The Times 'The best, most consoling book for children on the subject of bereavement!a joy to read' The Independent on Sunday

Any child who drags around a scruffy toy or blanket will identify with Mog, the Thomas family's cat, and his stuffed toy, Bunny. At night, Mog sleeps with Bunny. During the day, ``you never knew where Bunny would go next''in Mr. Thomas's slippers, or in Mog's water dish, or on a chair at suppertime. Kerr's text and pictures keep the action building as Bunny annoyingly turns up in the oddest places; Mr. and Mrs. Thomas finally threaten to throw Bunny in the trash. When a family picnic ends in a thunderstorm, Mog remains outside. At bedtime, the childrenNicky and Debbietry to coax Mog inside, and discover the reason he has endured the dark and the rain: Bunny is trapped under a barbecue fork and Mog can't carry it away. Nicky and Debbie rescue their cat and his toy, and even Mrs. Thomas agrees that Mog would be ``too sad'' if they ever threw Bunny away. All told, this story offers an inventive plot, sweet and funny art and a tactful point about treasures. Ages 3-6. (Jan.)
