The Tiger Who Came To Tea by Judith Kerr (Hardback)
Sorry, this product is sold out!
A voracious guest makes a surprise visit in this ferociously popular tale, first published more than forty years ago.
ONCE THERE WAS A LITTLE GIRL CALLED SOPHIE,
AND SHE WAS HAVING TEA WITH HER MUMMY IN THE KITCHEN.
SUDDENLY, THERE WAS A RING AT THE DOOR.
When the doorbell rings unexpectedly one afternoon, Sophie and her mummy can’t imagine who might be there. Much to their surprise, a tiger with a very large appetite has come to tea! What will they tell Daddy when he returns home and finds all the cupboards bare? First published in 1968, this classic and whimsical picture book from beloved children’s author and illustrator Judith Kerr is a delightful (and delicious!) story about the best way to entertain an unexpected houseguest, even when that guest just so happens to be a tiger.

"I cannot say enough good things about this book!! The story is simple and fun, and the illustrations are beautiful. My 18 month old begs for it every night and her 4 year old sister repeats it by heart. I love it that they both enjoy this book as much as I do!!"
"My daughter, who is two, finds this book captivating. She loves the tiger's antics and exclaims over his "stwipes." She is particularly delighted by the last part of the book, when Sophie and her parents -- after the tiger eats everything in the house and drinks all the water in the taps -- go to a cafe for dinner. My daughter recites their menu (sausages! chips! ice cream!) with great satisfaction every time we read the book. The story is lots of fun to read out loud and the images are intriguing, normalizing the hungry tiger's impromptu visit."
