But who will pour the tea now? asked Mog, sadly.

    I loved When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit when I was a child. RIP indeed.

    When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is one of those childhood books for me. One I have never forgotten.

    I was too old for Mog and Tiger Who Came to Tea, but my little sister had them.

    Wrong Mog.

    Meg and Mog is a series of children’s books written by Helen Nicoll and illustrated by Jan Pieńkowski.

    This Mog, though, is a fictional cat in a series of children's books written by Judith Kerr.

    I still remember "Mog - the forgetful cat" - it was one of the first books my parents ever bought me.

    What a splendid human being she was. I always thought the tiger was an elaborate fantasy made to get the father to take the family out to tea. Nonsense, I know, but I think JK would have sympathised!

    A very gifted artist and someone who was able to write interesting stories for children to read and enjoy. Not afraid to tackle 'darkness' as with Mog's death and didn't mollycoddle children.

    Beuatiful legacy with her books though.

    Though on a slightly different tck it has annoyed me when broadcasters have mis pronounced her name as 'Carr' rather than Kerr and at first I didn't even realise who they were referring to. (I know- it's a linguistic 'thing' and many people won't even have noticed. )

    She enriched the lives of many children, and will continue to do so. (I hope)

    Love the title of this thread. My children loved The Tiger Who Came to Tea (and I used it for an interview many years ago and got the job!) and Mog books. They are all still on my bookshelves and my grandchildren enjoy them just as much. RIP, Judith Kerr.

    I loved When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit as a child. I was too old for Mog, but read through the last one yesterday - what a lovely story.

    One assumes the domestics will continue to pour the tea.

    Oops, sorry, I though the thread title said Mogg.
