Mog and Bunny, and other stories by Judith Kerr #review

I have never hidden what a massive Judith Kerr fan I am, and I hope I am subtley influencing my daughter.
I was so glad that I could surprise her with 'Mog and Bunny' at storytime.
Firstly, because before the summer holidays we moved on from hopes of Dotty the Dog, and onto more hopeful dreams of 'Jewelly' the kitten for a Christmas present.
And second, because in the first week proper at school 'm' (Maisie, Mountain, Mountain) was one of the four letters being learned. (As I wrote the post-it explaining this was our show and tell item I found myself underlining the 's', 't', 'a', and 'm'.
And so Mog engaged Squeaks.
As the cat she hopes her kitten will grow into.
And as a being with fear, no matter how funny for everyone else.
Because everyone knows that roses are wonderful to appreciate but not for touch.

Squeaks loved the short stories, perfect for bedtime.

And talked so much of her hopes of having a kitten for Christmas.

And, of course, the stories are perfectly illustrated.
With engaging stories which keep little ones holding their breath.

And I have once again fallen in love.
As has my wonderful breath-taking daughter.
