Sophie and her Mummy are having tea in the kitchen when in walks a hungry tiger who asks to stay to tea. After eating everything, he moves on to Daddy's supper and for good measure also cleans out the fridge and drinks all the water from the tap.


When Daddy gets home he decides they should all have supper out and the next day Sophie and Mummy buy an extra big tin of tiger food - just in case the tiger comes back!


This delightful picture book from Judith Kerr is a true classic, with enduring appeal for children and parents alike. Kerr's vibrant, colourful illustrations and simple but charming story make this a perfect book to enjoy reading together.

The tiger was very hungry and ate everything he could. I like to act out this book.
