These are really cute and funny books filled with unusual illustrations with strong bright colours. Mog is a witch who may not be quite the best spellcaster out there, resulting in some strange side-effects when she tries to cure Mog in the first book. Fortunately for Owl, he was brought to the hospital when he broke his wing where he met an ostrich with a sore throat and a cat with a bandaged head. These are wondeful books to read to your kids, they're short but they make you laugh. Though we only have two of the books, I'm sure the rest of the series is just as much fun, too bad they are out of print.
