Mog's Christmas

Saltaire's Living Advent Calendar 2017

'Mog's Christmas' by Judith Kerr is a much loved children's picture book that my two little granddaughters both enjoy having read to them. Poor Mog, the cat, doesn't like the Christmas preparations and takes fright on the roof when she sees the Christmas tree, refusing to come down...

The windows at 51 Albert Road tell the story. The stars and baubles were made by children in the Reception class at Saltaire Primary School,  which is just across the road. I think these are my favourite windows this year, though they're all so good that it's hard to choose.


  1. I haven't read that one! I'm not joking I must have read stacks of children's books to the young people I used to look after, some of them I must have read a hundred times. But not that one.

  2. My daughters' loved Mog, (me too). Your photo of the swans is beautiful. The windows are lovely again. The soap windows and no. 55 are my favourites. Are you planning to tell us the film titles? I think I have 5 of them.

  3. Cute! I don't think the book made it across the pond, but not having kids, I could be quite mistaken.
