Top ten cats in children's books

Pip Jones is a London-based feature writer, columnist, editor and children's author. Her latest book is Squishy McFluff: The Invisible Cat!.

For the Guardian, Jones named her top ten cats in children's books, including:
Mog by Judith Kerr

The Mog books have been enjoyed by countless children since the 1970s but, just over a decade ago, Judith Kerr did something rather brave with her adored feline – she sent Mog to heaven. Mog helps a new kitten settle in to the family home before ascending completely, and it's hard to imagine anyone else tackling the sensitive subject of loss quite so straightforwardly and yet quite so gently.
Read about the other cats on the list.
