A wonderful new picture book from the bestselling author of The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mog the Forgetful Cat.

When the water in Katerina’s pond begins to disappear overnight, she makes the wise decision to follow the leak, and leads her family into an exciting underground adventure. Who knows where the geese will surface next?

Meanwhile, the villagers try to solve the problem of the empty pond, and only little Millie Buswell seems aware that its inhabitants are missing too! Will she ever see her favourite goose again?

More About the Author

Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, the daughter of a distinguished German writer. She left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape from the Nazis and they arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. She is best known for her children's books, both self-illustrated picture titles such as the 17-strong Mog series and The Tiger Who Came To Tea, and novels such as When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit and The Other Way Round, which tells the story of the rise of the Nazis in 1930s Germany from a child's perspective.

Review

Praise for The Tiger Who Came to Tea
‘This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house.’ Junior Magazine

Praise for Mog the Forgetful Cat:
‘Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!’ Choice Magazine‘

Praise for Goodbye Mog:
‘Kerr’s warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic’ Financial Times

‘Believable, amusing and moving’ Nursery World

‘A supremely sensitive story’ The Times

‘The best, most consoling book for children on the subject or bereavement…a joy to read’ The Independent on Sunday

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Goose in a hole 20 Aug 2010
By S Riaz HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Katerina is back for a sequel. After her adventures in "The Other Goose", Katerina is now living happily on her pond with Charlie and her goslings, when the water disappears. Millie Buswell is worried about where she is, but the local people are more concerned with fixing the pond. Meanwhile, the geese have wandered off in search of their new pond. As always, Judith Kerr tells a lovely story for children and everything works out wonderfully in the end. She is a superior author for children and the Katerina books are excellent as interesting and gentle bedtime stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Judith Kerr favourite 5 May 2011
By Karen
Format:Paperback
My 3.5 year old loves this - we have never had a 'bad' Judith Kerr book. They are not dumbed down, the pictures are beautiful and the storys lovely. My daughter engages with Katherina as she did Mog and the smaller little details that always run thru J. Kerr's books fascinates her - in this one the gosling who is always eating is a favourite. She was also thrilled to see pictures of a very Mog like cat through out. I've just found the first Katherina book - we've got them out of sequence - thrilled to find it I know it will be another favourite.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 4 year old son loves this book 18 Jun 2010
By Mr. R. D. Turner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
My four year old son is very taken with this story. It has been the firm favourite for over a month now, which of course means my wife and I have read it at least once each day. The story is about a pond where Katerina the goose lives and one night all the water disapeers down a hole. Katerina and her goose family chase after it to try and find a new pond. Meanwhile, the human villagers gather round to refill the pond and a little girl, Millie Buswell, worries where Katerina has gone.

The story is unusual for a childrens book in that it has a dual narrative, like an adults book. One narrative is the geese looking for a new pond, and one is the villagers refilling the old pond. Of course there is a happy ending and a surprise, and maybe it is this my son loves so much.
