Review by AbigailAdams26
Mog gets into trouble again in this tenth title devoted to her adventures, turning up her nose at her usual dinner fish, as well as the cat food that Nicky offers instead. Mr. Thomas, rather cross from putting out the bin-bags in the freezing snow, insists that Mog will NOT get an egg (her usual breakfast food) after refusing two perfectly good dinners. Mog, now cross herself, stalks out into the cold night and falls asleep. When she awakens, she discovers that a family of foxes have come to visit her garden, and are busy pawing through the trash. Escaping into the kitchen, Mog is not happy when her vulpine visitors follow her. Fortunately, while she takes refuge on Debbie's bed for the night, the foxes take care of her rejected dinner, leading Mr. Thomas to conclude in the morning (when the foxes are safely gone) that Mog is a good cat after all...Mog seems to have an inordinate number of surreal dreams in her stories, from <u>Mog In the Dark</u> to <u>Mog's Amazing Birthday Caper</u>, and <u>Mog on Fox Night</u> is no exception! I chuckled at the scene in her dream in which she and Mr. Thomas fight over a bin-bag filled with all the eggs in the world. Mog's expressions here, from her (self-consciously) sad face when begging for different food, to her wide-eyed indignation at finding her garden invaded, are as droll as ever, while the story will keep fans of this persnickety kitty entertained. Mog always seems to land on her feet, not so much through cleverness, but through good luck. Recommended to fans of the forgetful Mog, or to young children who enjoy stories of adorable kitties. For myself, with a plump Mog and a family of foxes, what's not to love?
