    Meg, Mog and Owl work in their vegetable garden in this seventh entry in Helen Nicoll and Jan Pieńkowski's witchy picture-book series, planting peas and carrots (Owl), a pumpkin (Mog), and some unidentified seeds (Meg). When the weather turns cold, Meg makes a sunshine spell - "Camel's hump / And vulture's eye / Make it bake / And frizzle and fry" - only to see the sultry heat all but destroy the garden. Fortunately, her spell for rain - "Splish splosh / All awash / Wellington boots / And macint Meg, Mog and Owl work in their vegetable garden in this seventh entry in Helen Nicoll and Jan Pieńkowski's witchy picture-book series, planting peas and carrots (Owl), a pumpkin (Mog), and some unidentified seeds (Meg). When the weather turns cold, Meg makes a sunshine spell - "Camel's hump / And vulture's eye / Make it bake / And frizzle and fry" - only to see the sultry heat all but destroy the garden. Fortunately, her spell for rain - "Splish splosh / All awash / Wellington boots / And macintosh" - brings much needed relief, and the trio close by weeding all the flowers Meg has inadvertently planted, and then eventually enjoying their harvest. As with previous forays into the Meg and Mog series, I enjoyed Meg's Veg, appreciating its quirky cast of characters, and the vivid illustrations. The language in these books is simple, with no more than a sentence or two per page, and the layout of the text - split between the main narrative voice, which tends to run along horizontally, and speech bubbles for the characters' exclamations, which tend to run on diagonal or curved lines - is creative. Pieńkowski's artwork is colorful and appealing - I particularly liked the two-page scene in which the three friends take shelter under a colorful red umbrella, as a black raincloud hovers above them - highlighting once again, for this reader at least, how seemingly "simple" picture-books require a great deal of skill and craft to create. Recommended to young children with a taste for witchy tales, or who have enjoyed other entries in the series.

    The only thing I liked about this one was where a jungle grew but the. They pulled it all out !” - comments of miss 5yo I actually really liked this one , it’s about Meg and mog going through the phases of a vegetable garden , needing the sun and the rain and harvesting etc As always the bright colors of the pages are gorgeous and attractive !

    So, I shall be going down a Meg & Mog rabbit hole after Tania found a stash of them in a charity shop and was appalled when I told her that I had never read them! In this installment Meg, Mog & Owl tend to the garden and vegetable patch.

    This one is particularly great for looking at rhyme and tells a great story through the typologies I.e placing the words all over the pages to emphasis the journey the characters are going on.

    Not as funny as Meg and Mog, but still entertaining. Plus, it teaches kids about gardening and vegetables. Not as funny as Meg and Mog, but still entertaining. Plus, it teaches kids about gardening and vegetables.

    Loved the sneaky dinosaur. I remember all these pictures from when I was young! Always loved mog and his pumpkin and always assumed they carved it rather than ate it. I feel obliged to point out that blackbirds don't eat carrots. Loved the sneaky dinosaur. I remember all these pictures from when I was young!

    Just read this to my 2 and a half year old son. I think it's a good way to help get him interested in helping me with the gardening next month! Just read this to my 2 and a half year old son. I think it's a good way to help get him interested in helping me with the gardening next month!

    One of the better Meg and Mog stories, that didn't end abruptly. Again though its the illustrations that stand out. One of the better Meg and Mog stories, that didn't end abruptly. Again though its the illustrations that stand out.
