Join Mog for a fantastical adventure with mousedogbird!

Mog sat in the dark.
Mog thought in the dark.
But the dark was not where Mog wanted to be…
And who else was there in the dark?

One night Mog’s imagination takes her on a hilarious twilight adventure to a land of fantastical creatures, but true to form, all Mog really wants is her supper!

The Review: Mog in the Dark is about Mog the cat experiencing the dangers of being outside at night compared to his daily routine of being a cat at home in his nice warm basket and with his family. This was the first time I’d ever read a book by Judith Kerr and her continued Mog books, even though I’ve been hearing about Mog for years. I have to say I was excited to dive in with my daughter, but it was quite clear from the start that this was not a book that we were going to enjoy. The main problem was that the story was so repetitive that I found it quite difficult to read it. My daughter – who is nearly 4 years didn’t appear to be that impressed either. Usually with a book she’ll point out what she likes or gets excited, but she didn’t do that with Mog in the Dark. Maybe she was a little young for it, I’m not sure but for us, this book didn’t work but I won’t rule out reading more of stories about Mog.

Thank you to  HarperCollins for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
