Mog celebrates 40th anniversary

2nd March 2010

Judith Kerr's feline creation Mog celebrates her 40th anniversary this year and to mark the occasion HarperCollins Children's Books is releasing a special edition of Mog the Forgetful Cat.

The pop-up edition of Mog's debut, which was first published in 1970, will be released in March 2010, accompanied by a programme of public events and festival appearances.

HarperCollins has also purchased the global licensing rights for film, TV and merchandising for the 17 Mog books and Kerr's best-selling picture book The Tiger Who Came to Tea and is seeking partners to develop a range of consumer products featuring the characters.

Mario Santos, managing director for HarperCollins Children's Books, said: 'Judith Kerr is a truly exceptional talent in the world of picture books. We are extremely proud to have been her publisher from the beginning, enabling her wonderful stories to be enjoyed by generations of children.'

Kerr began writing the Mog books, which were inspired by her family's many cats, when her children were learning to read.

In 2002 the final instalment in the series, Goodbye Mog, was published, which saw the beloved cat die but then return as a ghost to watch over her family's new kitten.

Other titles in the series include Mog's Christmas, Mog and The Baby and Mog in the Dark.
