Summary

Summary

While Sophie and her mother are sitting down to tea one afternoon, the doorbell rings. A big, furry, stripy tiger has come for tea ... and sandwiches, and buns, and biscuits ... and eats all the food in the house until there's nothing left to cook for Daddy's supper.

Judith Kerr's reassuring and funny story -- with just a hint of anarchy -- has been delighting children since its first publication thirty-five years ago. This modern classic has gone on to sell over three million copies worldwide, making it one of the most popular picture books for children ever written.

Publisher's Weekly Review

An unexpected guest arrives at Sophie's house and eats more than his fair share in The Tiger Who Came to Tea (1968) by Judith Kerr, conveyed in charming scenes that reflect 1960s sensibilities; and the language is deliciously British ("They had a lovely supper with sausages and chips and ice cream").
