The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

CHIL­DREN’S au­thor Ju­dith Kerr, who wrote The Tiger Who Came to Tea, has re­vived her cud­dli­est chil­dren’s book char­ac­ter Mog the For­get­ful Cat for the Sains­bury’s Christ­mas TV ad­vert. In Mog’s Christ­mas Calamity, the bushy-tailed moggy sets in mo­tion a string of dis­as­ters, yet man­ages to save the fam­ily from a fire. Kerr, 92, who wrote the semi-autobiographical When Hitler Stole Pink Rab­bit about her child­hood in 1930s Berlin, even makes a cameo, telling lit­tle Deb­bie Thomas that Mog “de­serves a medal”. To which the lit­tle girl replies: “I think she’d rather have an egg.”

An il­lus­trated book of the story is on sale in the su­per­mar­ket chain with pro­ceeds go­ing to the Save the Chil­dren char­ity.
