Publisher Description

This is a read-along edition with audio synced to the text, performed by Geraldine McEwan.

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.

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.

Reviews

‘Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying.’ Dorothy Butler, Babies Need Books.

‘A modern classic.’ The Independent.

‘This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house.’ Junior Magazine

Praise for ‘Mog the Forgetful Cat’:

‘Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!’ Choice Magazine

Praise for Goodbye Mog:

‘Kerr’s warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic.’ Financial Times

‘Believable, amusing and moving.’ Nursery World

‘A supremely sensitive story.’ The Times

About the author

Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, but left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape the Nazis. They arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. There she met her husband Nigel Kneale and they had two children together; Judith wrote ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ for them, which has gone on to become a much-loved classic, in print for over forty years. She was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to children’s literature and holocaust education, and celebrates her 90th birthday in 2013.
