The Tiger Who Came to Tea
This classic book was originally published in 1968 and it still retains its charm after all these years. Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to enjoy their tea when a tiger rings the door bell and invites himself in for tea. He eats all the food and drinks all the drink (even all the water in the tap) then leaves. Sophie and her mummy are then left without any supper and an incredible tale to tell daddy when he returns from a hard day at work. The illustrations are delightful and the story has a quiet old school charm from a time when the world appeared to be a simpler place. It does still have relevance to today's modern world and after reading this book if there was an unexpected visitor or knock on the door my almost 3 year old would get excited and exclaim it might be a tiger! unfortunately, so far she has been disappointed :) This book is a classic for a reason and will be around entertaining our lovely children for many more years to come.
