READ BY ANDREW SACHS. Mog doesn't like going to the vet. But when she hurts her paw she needs to make a visit. So Mog makes sure everyone know how unhappy she is to be there.
READ BY ANDREW SACHS. One day Mog was chasing a butterfly when something happened to her paw. It was very sore. So sore that she couldn't eat or sleep.
"She'll have to go to the vee ee tee," said Mrs Thomas. (She said vee ee tee instead of vet so that Mog wouldn't understand.) But Mog hates going to the vet and before her paw can be made better, she causes great confusion in the vet's surgery...
Judith Kerr OBE was born in Berlin. Her family left Germany in 1933 to escape the rising Nazi party, and came to England. She studied at the Central School of Art and later worked as a scriptwriter for the BBC.
Judith married the celebrated screenwriter Nigel Kneale in 1954. She left the BBC to look after their two children, who inspired her first picture book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea. Published in 1968 and never out of print in the fifty years since, it has become a much-loved classic and perennial bestseller.
Judith was awarded the Booktrust Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, and in 2019 was named Illustrator of the Year at the British Book Awards. Judith died in May 2019 at the age of 95, and her stories continue to entertain and delight generations of children.
