Toppsta Comment

The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a classic picture book that has delighted children and adults alike for over fifty years. Its timeless appeal is down to the charming illustrations and funny story which also make it one of Toppsta readers’ absolute favourites. When Sophie’s doorbell rings, the last thing she is expecting is a tiger wanting tea. After he has eaten all the food in the house, drunk all the drink (even the water out of the taps and all Daddy’s beer), Sophie and her mother are left wondering what to do when Daddy comes home to the aftermath. Author and illustrator Judith Kerr wrote the book in 1968, based on a bedtime story that she made up for her own daughters. Kerr is also the author of the popular Mog books about the lovable but madcap cat, as well as the semi-autobiographical story When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit about a family escaping Nazi Germany. The Tiger Who Came to Tea is now a successful stage play for children and an exciting TV adaptation is coming to Channel 4 this Christmas. The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a pleasure to read aloud and has been shared by many parents as their favourite book growing up. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the picture book’s publication, the publisher has brought out some special editions including a lovely pop-up book. The silliness of the tiger in the house is perfect for little ones aged 2 to 5 – check out the great reviews from our readers to prove it.
