What happens in the show?

In the show Mog forgot she had a catflap but ended up stopping a burglar and then got a sore paw and attacked a vet and went home. Then there was a big wooshy thing in her garden and she got very scared and jumped through the roof. It’s Mog the musical so there is lots of singing and dancing. The costume for Mog is very good and some people are half human and half pet!

What did you like most about the show?

What I liked most about the show was when Mog got an award, twice! Once for stopping burglars and once for jumping through the roof and winning a cat show.

Was there anything you didn’t like?

I didn’t like Mr Thomas being mean to Mog because I love Mog and she didn’t mean to do those bad things. It was just an accident!

What did your grown-up think?

My grown up thought it was good but he tried to call it Moggy McMogface and then my toy Mog attacked him!

Would you tell your friends to go?

I would not tell my friends to go because they don’t like Mog and the books are a bit short for them. It would be better for younger people and big Mog fans like me!
