Just as you sit down in the kitchen with your mummy for tea, the doorbell rings. So up you get to answer the door. Who could it be? Did you invite anyone over? You open the door to see... a tiger? There's a big, furry tiger at the door! I wonder what he could want? What would you do? Find out what Sophie did when it happened to her! (And how difficult it would be to keep a pet tiger.)
The Tiger Who Came to Tea was written illustrated by Judith Kerr. Her children's books have sold over 10 million copies, worldwide. The pictures spark nostalgia in parents as much as they inspire the imagination of children.
First published in 1968, The Tiger Who Came to Tea has not been out of print since. It's travelled the world and has remained popular, generation to generation. It's been adapted to the stage, it's been on the TV (Channel 4, 2019).
