Judith Kerr originally told The Tiger Who Came to Tea to her daughter Tacy at bedtime.
“I first told this story to my small daughter long ago. She was rather critical of my other stories but used to say, ‘Talk the tiger!’ So, when she and her brother were both at school and I had more time, I thought I would make it into a picture book – and much to my amazement, here it still is fifty years later.”
In 2018, we commemorate this momentous anniversary with a programme of glorious celebratory publishing, starting with these collectible fiftieth anniversary editions of the paperback and board book. These special editions make the perfect gift for fans of The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and are available wherever good books are sold.
