UK Kirkus review
Kerr's Mog books have been popular with children since the first title was published in 1970. Mog's Bad Thing, a new Mog book created to celebrate Mog's 30th birthday is a 'read with a picture' book for younger children that early readers could tackle confidently alone. Mog goes to use her lavatory behind the tree in the garden and is horrifies to find that her garden has disappeared - a large white 'flappy-floppy' thing is there instead. So the scared Mog runs inside and does a 'bad thing' on Mr Thomas's chair. The 'flappy-floppy' thing turns out to be a marquee for a cat show being held in the garden. How can Mog enter the show when she is hiding in the attic, feeling ashamed of her 'bad thing'. In the end Mog makes a spectacular entrance and wins the show. Even though this is a new Mog book, it is more in keeping with the earlier stories in the series than with modern picture books. The girls and women wear skirts and dresses, Mrs Thomas hands out tea and biscuits, then sweeps and dusts while the menfolk carry something to be ashamed of. The fact that there are some lovely illustrations of kittens and a wonderful variety of cats to spot does not save the book. While Mog fans will want this for their collection, it seems rather out of the social and cultural context in which our children are growing up. (Kirkus UK)
