LoveReading View on The Tiger Who Came to Tea Buggy Book

A Lovereading4kids 'Great read you may have missed 2011' selection.

The classic story of the greedy tiger who arrives unannounced and eats up everything in the house is attractively presented in this chunky buggy book. Sophie and her mother are delightfully bothered by the tiger who is more friendly than frightening despite his greed! The story has been slightly abridged from the original storybook publication in order to accommodate it into this Buggy Book format.

Emily Gravett on Judith Kerr:

'I read The Tiger Who Came to Tea when I was a child and loved it. I remember being obsessed with the bit where the tiger came and drank all the water in the tap. I think it was the domesticity of it, that this person was at home and that this could actually happen. It was so matter-of-fact. Nothing really happens but it's still somehow magical.

'Kerr keeps the text very simple, and the illustrations give you clues as to how you should read it. In her Mog books, you can look at Mog's face to see how shocked or dramatic the action is. He is just a funny cat, with a woebegone expression.

'If you mention Mog or The Tiger Who Came to Tea to someone under 40, they just smile – and that's the reaction a children's book should give: it should provoke a gut feeling.' (The Guardian)

The Tiger Who Came to Tea Buggy Book Synopsis

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.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea Buggy Book Press 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.
