5.0 out of 5 stars Night time fantasy beloved by my little girl 20 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Mog is alone, in the dark, and starts imagining all sorts of things. Little birds turn big and nasty and sprout teeth, mice swell to ten times their normal size and chase Mog, rather than the other way around, and dogs develop an ability to climb trees. Mog's worries disappear after dozing off - but then the fun really starts! My two-year old adores this fantastic tale of strange flying creatures and "big Daddy mice", as she puts it - and is even learning to read through her love of the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the Mog series 3 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a present for my children as they love the Mog series, and I thought it would help with my daughter's fear of the dark. I was right. They absolutely love the story, and we read it together on a regular basis. My daughter is still a little afraid of the dark, but reading this book has helped her to realise that she doesn't really having anything to be afraid of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mog in the classroom... 8 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another heartfelt, glorious read provided by author Judith Kerr. The children loved how Mog's silly, child-like imagination took them on an adventurous journey.It also allowed them to confront past incidents of when they felt scared, anxious, or uncertain about something. It also allowed children to be very vocal about what happens when we dream and what we dream about while we sleep.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit more off-the-wall than other Mog books 13 Jan 2013
By G. King
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is another one of Judith Kerr's 'Mog' books. Almost all her stories feature someone having a mad dream (sometimes Mog, sometimes her people) but a large part of this book is Mog having a really quite surreal, extended dream about things which might go on in the dark.

I'd definitely recommend it to children who are five plus and have a rich imagination. But some young readers might find some of Mog's dream a bit scary. There are giant garden birds with teeth at one point and our five-year old daughter was definitely uneasy about them.

But it compares very well against some of the sanitised children's books of today and if you want to fire your child's imagination, this book will certainly help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mog goes on an acid trip 1 July 2012
Format:Paperback
I have never taken LSD but my husband looked like a ghost after reading this book, saying it resembled one of his worst acid trips. It features giant tits with teeth (blue tits that is...), 'mousedogbirds' with multicoloured wings who try and pass themselves off as Mog's family, and ravening zoo animals. I am not joking.

Despite this it's kind of brilliant actually - I recommend it. My 2.5 year old adores it.
