Hello, I'm Su Pollard and I'm going to tell you about the pictures in a great story about a cat who forgets things! It's funny, sad, dramatic and has a happy ending. It's written and illustrated by Judith Kerr.
The front cover shows a big picture of Mog sitting on the grass surrounded by green leaves. She looks a bit puzzled I wonder what she's thinking? Turn over the page and find Mog on the first feely picture.
Feel all over Mog. She is large, round and grey with black stripes, with a big white bib of fur on her chest. She's sitting down, facing you so you can give her a stroke. She's got that puzzled look on her face. Find her grey head at the top and feel her two triangular shaped ears.

I like the story I like it because it's about a cat. I can follow the Braille when the book is being read to me. The story is funny and easy to remember. I like it when Mrs Thomas says "Bother that cat." Library Member
