The Tiger Who Came to Tea (Paperback)Judith Kerr (author)
There can be few books as well loved as Judith Kerr’s mischievous classic of a hungry tiger that turns up for a tasty morsel or two around the kitchen table. But tigers are awfully big and have appetites to match; will Sophie and her mother have enough in the cupboards to keep the tiger from gobbling them up for dessert? One that demands to be read again and again and again.
Share in fifty years of magic... This classic story of Sophie and her extraordinary teatime guest has been loved by millions of children since it was first published fifty years ago.
The Tiger has been coming to Tea for 50 glorious years! Celebrate this incredible anniversary with this special celebration edition of the classic story in paperback.
The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripy tiger!
This inimitable picture book is perfect for reading aloud, or for small children to read to themselves time and again.
First published in 1968 and never out of print, it has become a timeless classic enjoyed and beloved by generations of children.

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.

Our favourite! My 2 year old daughter wants this book read to her nearly every day! It is a pleasure to read, it's down to earth, children can really relate to such a strange event (a tiger coming to tea) as it... More
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.
