Dorothy Butler, Babies Need Books.'A modern classic.' The Independent.'This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house.' Junior MagazinePraise for 'Mog the Forgetful Cat':'Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!' Choice MagazinePraise for Goodbye Mog:'Kerr's warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic.' Financial Times'Believable, amusing and moving.' Nursery World'A supremely sensitive story.' The TimesPraise for 'One Night in the Zoo':'Lovely. uses soothing, pastel illustrations and exotic animals to make basic counting seem unintimidating.'
