Day 34. I like Mog, though I'm not sure why. She's a fairly plain cat, and she hails from the era before Grumpy Cat and Henri (the French Existentialist Cat) became internet sensations based on a particular brand of cattiness. Perhaps it's that we weren't cat owners in my family growing up (I got my dose with the stable cat at the riding school). Or maybe it's just the affectionately every-cat exploits of Mog that are appealing - she's the original cat in books. Certainly, this tale of Mog (which is about her extended family) is pretty plain and simple. It's more the kind of book that prompts discussion of what you can see in the pictures. The Mog book I most remember is Mog and the Baby. I don't know that Master A even knows what a cat is yet, but maybe when he finally meets one, we might be reading more of these.
Master A's verdict: Very keen to grab this book, which is why I couldn't get a steady shot of the inside. Might have been hungry - the cats better watch out.
