Product description

Ding-dong! Get your buns and sandwiches ready. It’s the big stripy guest we most like to find at our door. The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? It’s a big, friendly orange tiger. He’ll have to stay for tea, of course! But as you’d expect, a tiger this size has quite a big tummy. He eats all the food in the pantry. And he drinks all the water in the taps. Next time you’re having tea and a tiger appears, how will you please your furry guest?

  • Picture book perfection from classic author Judith Kerr
  • A delightful favourite loved by children worldwide
  • Surprising, imaginative, warm and very funny

    Best Book

    I started reading this book to my daughter when she was only a baby, now she is 18 months old and she loves this book - it HAS to be read EVERY night before bed (with another 2/3 books) "Tiger, Tiger, Tiger" she says, I've read it so many times I don't even have to look at the words any more. I am sure it is one of the books that made my daughter love books so much. It really is a must for every child. Don't be put off thinking that this is a book for younger children, I'm sure it is recommended for older children as it is a story book with lots of words and pages.
