MEDIA REVIEWS

"A modern classic." - The Independent.

"It's no surprise Judith's work is still popular. It owes nothing to the vagaries of style or fashion. Her warmth and humanity are timeless." - Michael Foreman

"Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying." - Dorothy Butler, Babies Need Books.

"This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house." - Junior Magazine

“Love love love it!”

A truly fabulous timeless book which has been much enjoyed on a (very) regular basis in our house and still is a firm favourite bedtime story with both of my children (2 & 4).

“Classic”

I recently bought this for my three month old niece.
Obviously she can't read it now, but hopefully she will grow up to love this book as much as I did when I was little.

“fun”

my two and a half year old has been enjoying this book for almost a year now and doesn't get tired of it. We enjoy reading it to her also.
Great pictures and other things to talk about in the background.
