I have my childhood copy...adore this one! ( )

Mog's Christmas by Judith Kerr is the sequel to Mog the Forgetful Cat. This is a great book fans of the recent A Very Fuddles Christmas looking for another book involving a cat confused by Christmas.

Mog's territory is once again being invaded. This time it's by a giant tree, and decorations, and presents. What's a cat to do but run away! Or in Mog's case, climb onto the roof to wait things out.

In all my years of having Christmas in a home with a cat or two, I've never had a cat on the roof. I did have one cat who fell off the balcony and got lost during a barbecue. The point though is that change can be hard on cats. They have a reputation for being aloof but they really can be put off their game during the holidays, or if there are house guests. ( )

This book had me sniggering on my morning commute! Poor Mog, that adorably befuddled kitty who debuted in Judith Kerr's Mog the Forgetful Cat, once again finds herself on the outs with her human family in this adorable Christmas tale. Finding the house in an uproar one day, with all of her usual playmates - Debbie, Nikky, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas - all too busy to spend time with her, she retreats outdoors, only to be confronted by a walking, talking tree! Fleeing to the rooftop, from which she refuses to be rousted, Mog huddles by herself in the cold and snow, eventually curling up on one particularly high surface. It isn't until the next morning that she returns home, by a most unusual route...

Like the other Mog books, Mog's Christmas presents an engaging and well-written story. The scene in which Mog confronts the moving tree (propelled, unbeknownst to her, by Mr. Thomas), is particularly amusing: Mog thought, "Trees don't walk. Trees should stay in one place. Once trees start walking about anything might happen." She ran up the side of the house in case the tree should come and get her. "Come down," shouted the tree. "Come down, Mog!" "First it walks," thought Mog, "and now it's shouting at me. I do not like that tree at all." And she ran right up to the roof. Then again, when Mog tumbles down the chimney, ala Father Christmas, that too was hilarious! Entertaining, heart-warming, and visually appealing - I really liked Judith Kerr's artwork here! - this is a wonderful addition to the Mog series, and a sweet little Christmas story as well. Recommended to all young cat lovers, and to fans of Mog. ( )
