The Tiger who Came to Tea – Judith Kerr

Tiger who Came to Tea

Tiger who Came to Tea

British writer and illustrator Judith Kerr was born in Germany. She left the country when she was 10 years old. She used to live in Switzerland and France before settling in Britain.

When she was a little girl, she dreamt of becoming a famous writer. But, funnily, she only began writing and illustrating books when her own children started learning to read.

The Tiiger who Came to Tea is a perfect classic story with wonderful pictures. Little Sophie and her mother are sitting in the kitchen and having tea. Somebody knocks at the door. It cannot be the milkman – he had already come today; it cannot be the grocer’s boy either – it’s not his day.

Daddy? But daddy is at work and he has the keys. Who could be at the door? Well, I bet you’ve guessed already – it is a big stripy tiger.

This tiger drinks all the tea in the house and eats all the food. The tiger even drinks all water from the taps before he leaves. When father comes, he can’t find anything to eat or drink so they all go to have a good meal out in a cafe.

The Tiger who Came to Tea is a perfect childrens book for reading aloud for your kids aged 2 upwards.

My grandson is laughing every time when I read about the tiger who eats all the food in the house and drinks water from a tap.

A lovely childrens book! And a lovely tiger, even though he eats everything. My three-year-old boy loves this book so much!
