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.

Product Description

Amazon Review

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 Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
After all these years it wouldn't be that surprising if the Mog books had started to fall off in quality...but not a bit of it. Mog's ongoing battle of wills with Mr Thomas continues, with Mog looking so woebegone that surely nobody could side with Mr T in whose chair Mog does a very bad thing...(well, nobody but my far-from-ailurophile husband, perhaps). Poor Mog, life does such awful things to her and, being 'nice but not very clever' (how like so many cats!) she always seems a bit behind in understanding the situation. But as usual she ends up with a big grin and all is well in her world. An indispensable addition to the collection for Mogophiles of any age.

This is the story of the day Mog did a very bad thing....It was an accident, but he had an accident on Mr Thomas's chair. This is story of the events preceeding and following Mog's unfortunate episode. It will deight children of all ages with clever use of language and wonderful illustrations. A great book in true Mog tradition, this is a must for anyone who loves to here their kids giggle during a bed time story.

One of the many Mog stories, and one of my favourites! Mog is possibly one of the most adorable cats ever put to paper! Any child or adult cat lover will cherish her exploits.
And in this story Mog has done a "Bad Thing" in the lounge....She didnt mean too, but the big scary flappy thing in the garden frightened her! Bless! The art is amazing, the facial expressions of Mog are utterly cute, and we can really empathise with her! Theres a happy ending too, and lots of lovely cats to look at with a cat show going on. Perfect for kids and grown ups! Adorable!

An excellent book. I bought my niece 'Mog the Forgetful Cat' for Christmas as I had loved it as a child. She loved it too so bought this for her birthday. I thought it might be particularly pertinent as she is potty training and has also recently moved house. Beautiful illustrations too...

You can't help but think that the writer of this book has no idea about how people or cats behave.

I know Judith Kerr is popular and that this range of books has sold very well. I suspect that's because it was read by people who were just looking at the pretty pictures of cats, and liked the sound of the words, rather than paying any attention to the content.

Awful awful nonsense.

I'd rate it 1 star, but my 2 year old daughter really likes it, so her vote bumps the rating up. She'll learn.

Our children, aged 2 and 2, loved this story. It's beautifully written and illustrated. We'll be purchasing more of the Mog series in future.

This story was an easy, steady read which allowed the children to be humoured and entertained. They giggled and laughed at silly Mogs antics but it also allowed them to sympathise with Mog, because they could relate to their own irrational fears. They understood why certain objects or events had caused Mog to feel that way as well as why family members had reacted in a certain way. This boosted their awareness of the emotional and behavioural aspects of animals and humans.
