Took the kids to this literally last week:
Absolute classics. Don’t know any of her other stories, but will be checking them out. 95 is a good innings
Oh… This is sad.
Watched a really good documentary about her not so long ago. When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is a super book.
Just saw that and felt really sad. I saw an exhibition of her work in London a few years back. Such great artistry in something that appears simple and the story of how she came to Britain in the 30s is inspiring.
I’ve got a 2-year-old and I cannot tell you how many times we have read The Tiger Who Came To Tea - and never got bored of it. Such a weird, brilliant story. The page where they go out to the cafe at night is impossibly exciting.
Mog’s great too, and there’s one called One Night In The Zoo we like, but really, it’s all about that tiger isn’t it. Sausage, chips and ice cream for tea tonight.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea was a favourite of mine as a nipper.
Aw. Going to read Goodnight Mog (or is it Goodbye Mog) to Jimbo later in her memory.
Goodbye Mog is so sad
Never heard of this - just reading the Wiki and it sounds great
So sad. As well as being a great author, she had a wonderful collection of cats:
The cat in the last pic look so grumpy
this was my favourite book as a child
Genuinely upset as her books were synonymous with my childhood, inspiring my love of literature.
For anyone with a spare hour, this is a wonderful documentary on Judith Kerr’s life.
That’s the documentary I alluded to above. Such a great watch
Remember watching this when it was broadcast. Excellent.
