Judith Kerr – Mister Cleghorn’s Seal

mr_cleghorn_Judith Kerr – author of ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’ and the ‘Mog’ stories – recently published a new book.

Now 92 and still writing and illustrating, Kerr’s 1971 autobiographical novel ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit’ tells the story of her family’s escape from Nazi Germany in 1933.

‘Mister Cleghorn’s Seal’ (published on 10/9/15) is a lovely little story about a man who saves a seal pup.  The text is broken up by the author’s own illustrations.  The book is quite short – an adult could easily read it in about half an hour.  Possibly for Y2 to Y4.
