Mog was tired. She was dead tired...Mog thought, `I want to sleep for ever.' And so she did. But a little bit of her stayed awake to see what would happen next.

Nothing happens for some time...then suddenly, one day, Mog sees a little kitten in the house. The kitten is frightened of everything - noise, newspapers, bags and being picked up. Mog thinks the kitten is very stupid.

But then Mog realises that the nervous kitten doesn't know how to play and just needs `a little bit of help'. And so, Mog pushes the surprised kitten into Debbie's lap, where it finds it actually likes being tickled and stroked.

Mog the Cat
The Mog series features Mog the cat was based on Judith Kerr's own family, with Mog the family tabby and The Thomas family named after the members of Kerr's household.

This book features the following character:

Mog
Mog is a cat who lives with the Thomas family. Mog is not very clever but she is lovely. Sometimes Mog saves the day - she foils a burglary and even saves a baby from an on coming car. But sometimes she is just a bit hopeless.... Despite this the family love her.

Wise, sometimes wistful but ultimately triumphant, this picture book really is something special. Judith Kerr's previous Mog stories have always hit the highest standards; this one is her best yet: clever, affectionately illustrated and totally life-affirming.' The Independent
