Description
The enchanting story of Sophie and her extraordinary tea-time guest has been loved by millions of children since it was first published 40 years ago. Now a new generation can enjoy this perennial children's classic in a mini edition. 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.
Reviews

Praise for 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea': 'Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying.'

'This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house.' Junior Magazine Praise for 'Mog the Forgetful Cat': 'Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!' Choice Magazine Praise for Goodbye Mog: 'Kerr's warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic.' Financial Times 'Believable, amusing and moving.' Nursery World 'A supremely sensitive story.' The Times Praise for 'One Night in the Zoo': 'Lovely! uses soothing, pastel illustrations and exotic animals to make basic counting seem unintimidating.' Daily Telegraph
