Synopsis

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.

The magic begins at teatime!

Judith Kerr OBE was born in Berlin. Her family left Germany in 1933 to escape the rising Nazi party, and came to England. She studied at the Central School of Art and later worked as a scriptwriter for the BBC. Judith married the celebrated screenwriter Nigel Kneale in 1954. She left the BBC to look after their two children, who inspired her first picture book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea. Published in 1968 and never out of print in the fifty years since, it has become a much-loved classic and perennial bestseller. Judith was awarded the Booktrust Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, and in 2019 was named Illustrator of the Year at the British Book Awards. Judith died in May 2019 at the age of 95, and her stories continue to entertain and delight generations of children.

Customer Reviews

A lovely book for children and grown ups of all ages! I remember this from childhood-it is one of those books that works at different levels- I loved the pictures and the story as a child, re-reading it now for a course I'm about to start, I have found the book leaves a message about the potential to sometimes try new things- see what happens if you do things just that little bit differently-without needing the chaos of a tiger eating you out of house and home!
