While Sophie and her mother are sitting down to tea one afternoon, the doorbell rings. A big, furry, stripy tiger has come for tea ... and sandwiches, and buns, and biscuits ... and eats all the food in the house until there's nothing left to cook for Daddy's supper.

Judith Kerr's reassuring and funny story -- with just a hint of anarchy -- has been delighting children since its first publication thirty-five years ago. This modern classic has gone on to sell over three million copies worldwide, making it one of the most popular picture books for children ever written.
