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.

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.
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!Read more ›
This edition is slightly larger than the regular book, MEG and MOG, measuring in around 22.25 cm square, with silvery embellishments to the front cover.
