Review: Mums And Mogs

Mums And Mogs is pure delight.

Acclaimed author and mischief-maker Mick Elliot delivers a veritable snapshot of all the possible combinations of mothers, children and their cats – also known as mogs. 

This celebration of all things feline within family is a hoot.

‘A joyful carnival of fun, family, and more than a little bit of mischief…’

We are treated to many, many bright and cheerful illustrations of family situations where mogs abound in daily life. 

There are dressed-up mogs, hungry mogs, happy mogs, muddy mogs, crazy mogs and wily mogs.

The fresh and funny pictures along with fabulous and often onomatopoeic word-play, combine to bring a breezy sense of fun and play to this book.

Children will certainly delight in the all-round variety and mischief of these furry friends.
The sticker on the front tells us that this is The Purrfect gift to say I Love You, Mum.

And yes, it probably is!
