I loved this book when I was small and my three children have enjoyed it just as much. This and all the other Mog stories are firm favourites in our house and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a present for a child. Little ones will enjoy having it read aloud, and bigger ones will be proud to be able to read it themselves. The story is simply and clearly told as well as being very funny and well illustrated. I love Judith Kerr's observation of British life; the way the burglar joins Mr and Mrs Thomas for a cup of tea while the policeman takes notes is very amusing.

Along with many other people, I remember the Mog stories from my childhood. However, since having my own children, I 've learnt to appreciate classic picture books so much more.
Our daughter has fallen in love with Mog - and I think I have too! She's a little over 2 and one of her first words has been 'Mog'. She loves animals but we'll never get a cat as my husband's allergic to them. And so Mog has been adopted into our family.
There are perhaps a few too many words in this story for a 2 year old, but if she's patient, we can read through it in full. We often 'read' the pictures too. We join in with the refrain of 'Bother that cat!' and feel proud along with Mog when she receives her medal - and egg - for bravery at the end.
The family and settings start to become as familiar as our own. And Mog is becoming a well loved member of our (fictionalised) family.
All the other Mog books we've read are wonderful too; there are 17 in all.
I'd also recommend the board books (Mog's Family of Cats, Mog in the Garden, etc) for younger fans. They're much shorter but just as good.

PS If you love Mog, you might - like us - love to read Shirley Hughes' books; another 1970s-80s classic author who evokes a real sense of busy, noisy, family life with engaging, endearing characters.

I own a cat who is a circle. She has round eyes, very un-cat like. She is kind and very dim. Had I read the book 'Mog the Forgetful Cat' , before she was mine I would have named her Mog.She is now 14 years old. I discovered the 'Mog' books when she was one. I read them to her, and several children. As a teacher of English I can honestly say that these books are universal. Their value when you look in the eyes of a child listening to these stories is inestimable! I have introduced them to many children and adults over decades and they never fail to produce a magical response.I am very proud to have a cat who lives with me and is 'Mog' in all but name.(her name is Pearl)It's never too late to discover the magic of 'Mog' and I urge you all to do it now. Life is poorer without her.Had I had this cat sooner I would have written these books. Sadly she and I came 30 years too late.
Be aware of wonder - read 'Mog The Forgetful Cat' and all the other titles in this series.

After seeing the christmas advert for Sainsburys I had forgotten all about Mog and how much I loved reading them when I was a kid. So I bought my favourite Mog book. It took me right back and put a smile on my face. The book its self is a lovely small size. (not too small) The hardback feels great and is really good quality. It also comes with a dust cover. The pages are crisp with the most fantastic pictures of Mog. A good wee book what ever your age.

Another item purchased for My 2 year old Niece. Not a lot you can say about this book except that it is just as good as all the others in the MOG series. Mog is a loveable if not mischievous cat who always ends up being praised. The book is well made as are all the MOG books [We have a few now] I certainly recommend this book.

My little boy just loves this book. He loves it when we say 'Bother that cat' in a loud voice just like Mr and Mrs Thomas. A great story for our little boy. I've just bought him a whole load of other Mog books as he loves this one so much.

I love to reading the Mog books when I was a little girl and I love the fact that she has now come back into popularity from the Sainsburys advert. My daughter enjoys reading these books as well. They are well written and the personality and opinions of the cat are hilarious. Exactly how you would picture a cat speaking & thinking if they could.
The print quality and imagery in the book also of a very high quality and much the same as they used to be when I was little.

I loved this story as a child and I'm delighted now to see my children enjoying it with exactly the same illustrations. Both children think it is highly amusing when Mog forgets the most simple things and each time Mog does something that's a nuisance (like squashing the flowers in the window-box, or sitting on a hat) they like to shout out 'Bother that cat' with Mr and Mrs Thomas. Basically, in this story Mog foils a burglar through her forgetfulness and gets a medal. My three-year old son is big on cops and robbers and loves the pictures showing the archetypal storybook burglar - stripy jumper, flat cap, torch and a big bag for swag - and is delighted when the police show up. I'm more amused by the burglar sharing a cup of tea with the Thomas family post-arrest. A classic.
& if you enjoy Mog the Forgetful Cat, you might like to try the longer picture book Oakley: The Church Mouse for the same 1970s charm.
