A voracious guest makes a surprise visit in this ferociously popular tale, first published more than forty years ago. (Ages 3-6)
ONCE THERE WAS A LITTLE GIRL CALLED SOPHIE,
AND SHE WAS HAVING TEA WITH HER MUMMY IN THE KITCHEN.
SUDDENLY, THERE WAS A RING AT THE DOOR.
When the doorbell rings unexpectedly one afternoon, Sophie and her mummy can’t imagine who might be there. Much to their surprise, a tiger with a very large appetite has come to tea! What will they tell Daddy when he returns home and finds all the cupboards bare? First published in 1968, this classic and whimsical picture book from beloved children’s author and illustrator Judith Kerr is a delightful (and delicious!) story about the best way to entertain an unexpected houseguest, even when that guest just so happens to be a tiger.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Our 3 year old loves this book. It is fun and surreal, no one blinks when a tiger comes to tea, they are more concerned that they have supplies on hand to host him next time he decides to stop by. Our son just loves it.
Funny and endearing.
I have always loved this book... and today the impulse just came over me and I had to buy it!
