The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mommy 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! A tiger who drinks all the tea, then goes on to eat all the food in the house and drink all the drinks, even draining the water from the taps so that Sophie cannot have her bath. This reassuring, funny story with a hint of anarchy has delighted children for years since its first publication.

An unexpected guest arrives at Sophie's house and eats morethan his fair share in The Tiger Who Came to Tea (1968) by JudithKerr, conveyed in charming scenes that reflect 1960s sensibilities;and the language is deliciously British ("They had a lovely supperwith sausages and chips and ice cream").
