The Tiger Who Came to Tea

author/illustrator: Judith Kerr

When the doorbell rings unexpectedly one afternoon, Sophie and her mummy canít imagine who might be there. Much to their surprise, a tiger with a very large appetite has come to tea! First published in 1968, this classic and whimsical picture book from beloved childrenís author and illustrator Judith Kerr is a delightful (and delicious!) story about the best way to entertain an unexpected houseguest, even when that guest just so happens to be a tiger.

A voracious guest makes a surprise visit in this ferociously popular tale, first published more than fifty years ago.
