The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a timeless classic by Judith Kerr which tells the tale of a little girl called Sophie and her mother who sit down for an afternoon snack when all of a sudden the door bell rings. Sophie and her mum are unsure of who could be at the door as Sophie's dad was still at work. To Sophie's amazement when she answers the door she is greeted by a very hungry tiger who asked could he sit for some lunch.

While sitting with Sophie and her mum the tiger begins to eat the family out of house and home, demolishing everything on the table biscuits, cake and sandwiches, before drinking all the milk and tea.

After the tiger had finished eating he thanked Sophie and her mother for his lovely dinner before departing. The story and it's illustrations are very simple and charming, the pictures showing the little girl adored the tiger and she bought a can of tiger food in case he ever reappeared.

A story that children have loved for decades and will continue to do so, perfect for Early Years Setting.
