Product Description

Amazon Review

Meg and Mog is the first in the long-standing series about a witch (Meg) and her cat (Mog). Meg is a cute well-meaning witch who lives with Mog and her owl. In Meg and Mog, we are introduced to a witch wardrobe and a witch's breakfast. Later Meg flies off to meet her witch friends for some spell-making at a Halloween Party. Unfortunately the spell does not go exactly to plan...

The illustration is simple and with very bold, deep colours. Designed specifically to appeal to very young children, Meg and Mog has short simple sentences on each page, allowing the illustration to play an important part in the storytelling.

If you enjoy the first Meg and Mog, enjoy more adventures in Meg on the Moon and Mog at the Zoo. (Ages 1 to 3 years.) --Victoria MacKenzie --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Meg and Mog is a fantastic story to read and share with children. It stimulates interaction between parent and child and encourages the child to remember a short catchy story by ear. The story also helps children to identify objects and encourages them to shout out their answers to various fun objects,i.e recognising pictures with words. Therefore encouraging the child to start early reading by keeping them involved in the story.
By the end of the book your child will be telling you most of the story themselves by prompting your child's imagination!!
This book will create a Meg and Mog fan and your child will be screaming for more fun stories and adventures of the famous Meg and Mog.(Who surely every parent must remember from somewhere in the childhood.)
A great read for anytime of day but particularly good reading fun at bedtime.

Format: Paperback
Review for the 1972/PUFFIN BOOKS paperback edition, measuring 20 cm square.

Text from Helen Nicoll & superb illustrations from Jan Pienkowski.

From inside the front cover:-

'Meg the witch and Mog her cat go off to a wild Hallowe'en party with all the other witches.
The spell they cast goes off with a BANG!'

A bewitching cover opens to 28 colourful shiny pages in double-page spread format.
Seemingly simplistic illustrations in vibrant colour throughout are far more detailed than you first notice. Discussion opportunities include the basics of getting dressed, having breakfast, counting, time, colours, moods from facial expressions, rhyming names and repetition. Varying levels of artwork opportunities exist particularly based around the pages where Meg gets made up for the night. I have seen some delightful 'witches' from the youngest of children who are encouraged by the four stages of dressing up, step-by-step, and have a go, too, not forgetting the changes in Meg's expression!
Possible extension exercises for older children include memory games including recalling what was on the pages and what went into the cauldron - 'bubble, bubble'!

Clear, easy-to-follow text is enhanced in places FOR EFFECT, and a handful of speech bubbles present an opportunity to join in with!

Example of text:-

'Once upon a time there was a witch called Meg.
At midnight the owl hooted 3 times and woke her up
WHOO WHOO WHOO

She got out of bed to dress for the spell party.
She put on her black stockings....her big black shoes......her long black cloak, and her tall black hat........'

Meg gradually gets herself dressed up and goes off down to the kitchen for a very early breakfast!

This was my favourite book from nursery school when I was little. I was absolutely over the moon to find out that it was still available so that I could read it to my children. It's a simple story about a witch called Meg and her cat Mog getting ready for Halloween. There is a lovely rhythm to the words which has enabled our three year old to memorise the words and now he reads it to me! We chose to buy the board book version so that our younger daughter can read it too without the worry that she might rip a page which has worked out well. It ends up tucked under our sons pillow at night as he lives it that much. The pictures are simply drawn which means when our son asks us to make up our own picture of meg and mog I actually stand half a chance of him recognising what I've drawn hehe.

Brilliant book, my 2 year old has had it read to her so many times she can 'read' it herself. I think it will really help her to start learning to really read, as she can point out some of the words already.

Entertaining, colourful and great fun to read as with all Meg & Mog's. Great value and quality too, no reduction in quality than buying them separately. Appeals to the very young to those just learning to read. However do look out for the 10 book set which is excellent. Also would recommend Meg & Mog 3 Favourite Stories over this collection but both are excellent.

I bought this for my 14month old as I remembered it from my childhood. He absolutely loves this simple story - I read it 5 times in one day. Highly recommend it

Brilliant Book - although not quite as popular as 'Red Meg & Mog' (the other volume of 3 stories) with our 2 year old. The clear illustration and sparse wording (all the better for creating imaginative stories within are a firm hit in our house and a staple of the bed-time story routine. Mog @ the Zoo and Meg's Veg are the most read stories of the three (although telling off the owl's for eating the mice in Meg up the Creek is growing in popularity). The only downside is my Meg voice is quite hard on my throat!
