Waterstones Says

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.

The classic picture book story of Sophie and her extraordinary teatime guest has been loved by millions of children since it was first published more than fifty years ago. Now an award-winning animation!

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 warm and funny picture book story from 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, and this beautiful cased board book is perfect for little hands.

The magic begins at teatime!

MEDIA REVIEWS

“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. ‘A modern classic.’ The Independent. ‘This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house.’ Junior Magazine Praise for ‘Mog the Forgetful Cat’: ‘Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!’ Choice Magazine Praise for Goodbye Mog: ‘Kerr’s warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic.’ Financial Times ‘Believable, amusing and moving.’ Nursery World ‘A supremely sensitive story.’ The Times Praise for ‘One Night in the Zoo’: ‘Lovely… uses soothing, pastel illustrations and exotic animals to make basic counting seem unintimidating.’ Daily Telegraph
