Meg and Mog

Helen Nicoll and Jan Pienkowski

Meg and Mog is the first in the long-standing series about a witch (Meg) and her cat (Mog). Meg is a cute well-meaning witch who lives with Mog and her owl. In Meg and Mog, we are introduced to a witch wardrobe and a witch’s breakfast. Later Meg flies off to meet her witch friends for some spell-making at a Halloween Party. Unfortunately the spell does not go exactly to plan…

It’s been so lovely to see the Meg and Mog books regain their popularity – if indeed their popularity ever waned! I loved these books as a child was so happy to see them gracing the shelves of the book shops again of late. It gives me a warm and cosy feeling to be reading them again with my children now.

The stories are simple and enjoyable. Although Meg is a witch she isn’t scary or unlikeable in any way and, although I’m not a fan of Halloween or any scary stuff in general, Meg and Mog make for enjoyable and fun reads for pre-schoolers and even those a little older who will like to read the books to themselves.

Verdict: With fun little stories and wonderful illustrations these are a welcome addition to our bookshelf!
