This classic story of Sophie and her extraordinary tea-time guest has been loved by millions of children since it was first published over 30 years ago. Now a new generation will enjoy this beautiful reformatted edition!


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 modern classic picture book is perfect for reading aloud, or for small children to read to themselves time and again. All artwork has been re-originated and a fresh design approach has been used for this reformatted edition.

I have read this book so many times to my little ones and still haven’t tired of it. It is one of my husbands favourite children’s books. The illustrations are great and the story is so sweet. Teaches about kindness to strangers. Highly recommended.

Sophie is very lucky to have a tiger come to her house for tea but he ate everything up! I love this story and was my mummy’s favourite book when she was little too! I like reading this to my little sister :)

This is one of most favourite story books ever and I am still amazed when children say they haven't heard this as my own two children grew up having this read to them!
As a primary school teacher I have shared this book with every class I have taught and they have all loved it!
Sophie gets a knock on the door and to have amazement there is a huge, stripey tiger at the door asking to come in for tea! The language which you can explore, the questions asked and the responses given make this book a must for every classroom and every child's home. I love Judith Kerr and the story takes you through the day ending with the problem at the end of Daddy returning to no food for tea!
I love, love this picture book!

Lovely book with great illustrations. Ellie found it very engaging and loved the make-believe element of it-imagining a tiger would come to tea! I love that it appeals to varied age groups-at various times I’ve read it to all of my grandchildren between the ages of 5months and 5 years.

Average reading age of 3-5 years however this book is in my opinion suitable for all age groups. 
I am now 35 years of age and never tire of reading the tiger who came for tea.

It is based on a girl named Sophie who is about to sit and eat tea with her mother but then the door bell goes and to their surprise it’s a tiger who ends up eating them out of house and home! 

Illustrations are to perfection and story is well written, no wonder it is a modern classic and much loved by all who read.

My son absolutely adores this book. The pictures in the book were illustrated perfectly. After reading the storey to my little one a few time he was able to tell the storey page by page himself useing the pictures. I cant fault this old time classic.
