Kate Mercer is sitting close by, adding more and more layers of detail – working at the end of the process begun by Shaw and then sketched out by Smith. This new animated special will see a team of artists bring to life Judith Kerr’s vivid illustrations in Lupus Films’ distinctive, hand-drawn animated style from their studio in London.

Meanwhile, Adjoa Andoh, who narrates the film, said that it was "obviously" an easy project to say yes to, and explained why. The team last worked together on Channel 4’s Emmy award-winning seasonal hit – an adaptation of Kerr’s The Tiger Who Came to Tea – which was the third highest-rating programme on the channel in the whole of 2019.

Mog is adorable, the family is amusingly doing weird stuff in preparation for the holiday, confusion ensues and all is happily resolved on the day itself.Again, using anthropomorphism, bring Mog to life and debate whether she should tell the truth or take the praise – for instance, do you think she eats the egg she is given at the end of the advert? Published in 1968 and never out of print in the fifty years since, it has become a much-loved classic and perennial bestseller.

The house fills up with people, objects are being hidden inside paper and ribbon, people are dancing and drinking and a big fir tree walks in and sets up camp in the middle of the living room. While it isn’t exactly stirring or even especially memorable, this is a show for the very young, the very tired, for all those of us in need of something soothing and sweet. We are on location at Lupus Films, where founders Camilla Deakin and Ruth Fielding, plus director Robin Shaw and the team are hard at work on Channel 4’s follow up to We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, The Snowman and The Snowdog and 2019’s The Tiger Who Came To Tea. Thomas - all too busy to spend time with her, she retreats outdoors, only to be confronted by a walking, talking tree! I had all the Mog books when my children were children, I think they were a big hit because Mog looked a bit like our cat (the cat at that time, not a few generations later like our current ones who cannot be seen on dark stairwells, I don't know how they keep losing their shine in the dark collars, who's choice were they?Support our vendors this winter and beyond If you can't visit your local vendor on a regular basis, then the next best way to support them is with a subscription to the Big Issue.

It provides parents with a framework to introduce children to the concept of grief in a way that is controlled, but not sanitised. I haven’t read it, but maybe the calamity was that the Thomases only just realised Mog had been dead for 13 years.

Hopefully by the time we are treated to another one in a few Christmases, my daughter will still be young enough to love it as much as she does this. The house is full of strangers, everything is noisy – and when she sees a spiky tree walking around and talking, it’s the last straw!
