RIP Helen Nicoll; Creator of Meg and Mog

It is with great sadness that I pass on the news of the passing of Helen Nicoll, creator of the beloved Meg and Mog series of children's picture books.Along with Jan Pienkowski, working as illustrator, Nicoll created the popular series about a witch and her cat, which have become some of the most popular and outstanding childrens books in the last 35 years.
Helen passed away at the age of 74, leaving behind her husband of 42 years, interior designer Robert Kine, two children, Hannah and Tom and the Meg and Mog series, which will entertain and encourage reading and joy in children for generations to come.
Helen Nicoll; born 10 October, 1937, died 30 September 2012.
