My First Mog 123
Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, but left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape the Nazis. They arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. There she met her husband Nigel Kneale and they had two children together; Judith wrote her first picture `The Tiger Who Came to Tea' for them, which has gone on to become a much-loved classic, as well as many other titles including the timeless `Mog the Forgetful Cat'. She was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to children's literature and holocaust education, and celebrated her 92nd birthday in 2015. She still lives and works in London.
