Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, the daughter of a distinguished German writer. She left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape from the Nazis and they arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. She has a daughter who is a designer and a son who is a novelist. Judith lives in London.
Judith Kerr's popular feline, who has now passed away in picture books (Goodbye Mog), is still among the living in a quartet of board books: Mog and Me; Mog in the Garden; Mog's Family of Cats; and Mog's Kittens. The first title introduces the cat and her toddler buddy, from their morning stretch through an active day of play until bedtime. In Garden, cat and boy play together outside until the boy goes to bed and Mog plays alone. Family of Cats introduces Mog's relatives at Mog's third birthday; and in Kittens, Mog raises two kittens of her own, until they head to new homes and "Mog can sleep on [the boy's] bed again." Soft pastel illustrations lend a friendly, calm feeling to the adventures. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
