About the Author:

Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, but left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape the Nazis. They arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. There she met her husband Nigel Kneale and they had two children together; Judith wrote ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ for them, which has gone on to become a much-loved classic, in print for over forty years. She was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to children’s literature and holocaust education, and celebrated her 90th birthday in 2013.

From Publishers Weekly:

An unexpected guest arrives at Sophie's house and eats morethan his fair share in The Tiger Who Came to Tea (1968) by JudithKerr, conveyed in charming scenes that reflect 1960s sensibilities;and the language is deliciously British ("They had a lovely supperwith sausages and chips and ice cream").
