Mog, everyone’s favourite cat, is back and she is not happy…
Mog loves her garden, but somehow it seems to have completely disappeared over night. What Mog doesn’t realise is that the flappy floppy thing that has replaced her garden is in fact a marquee put up for a cat show. Mog hides in the house and is oblivious to the cats of various sizes and colours who parade themselves hoping to be winners. But soon curiosity takes over and Mog makes a spectacular entrance, winning the show as a result of her acrobatics.

Poor Mog. After a heavy night of mouse hunting she heads home and has a quick sniff around her garden (including her special "lavatory" tree) before she curls up for a lovely deep sleep. But when she wakes up, desperate for the loo, everything has changed. And instead of her lovely garden (and her special "lavatory" tree) there is a big white flippy flappy thing making a terrible noise and frightening her half to death. But poor Mog really, really needs to go to the toilet, and she just cannot wait any longer. So she does a very bad thing...
Judith Kerr's adorable Mog is always a delight, but this is a particularly fine example of what can be done with a familiar character. The expressions on Mog's little face as she deals with her toilet ordeal are an absolute joy, and as the story unfolds and she realises that her garden hasn't really disappeared at all and her family start to forgive, the "ah" factor increases tenfold.
Mog's Bad Thing is pure, unadulterated pleasure, combining witty illustration and snappy text with a storyline that adults and children will love to share. --Susan HarrisonReview:
