    It was nice of them to buy food for the tiger but he never came again.

  3. Eva Unsworth says:

    It was nice that the girl said that the tiger could come in. I wasnt nice of the tiger to eat all of the food and drank all the water. It was nice that they went out for dinner.

    The tiger who went to tea is really funny because the tiger drank all of the tea and took some food from the floor to eat and that was disgusting and that why I love it sooooooooooo much

    I liked it when the tiger knocked on the door. I thought it was a bad thing when the tiger ate all the food because then Sophie and her mum wouldn’t have any dinner and they’d be starving.

  15. Sylvia Macaulay says:

    This book makes me use my imagination. I would like a tiger as a pet. The story makes me feel like an explorer. I don’t know how they found tiger food at the shops.

  16. ameyricrothstein says:

    A tiger came to a girls house but as soon as he enters things start to go wrong…

    The tiger who came to tea is a bit strange because there is a tiger who eats everything in the house when Sophie opens the door and lets it in

  18. jislam says:

  23. cwilloughby says:

    This book is perfect for all ages.It’s about a tiger who came to tea!My favourite part is where the
    tiger knocks on the door.

  24. kclarke says:

    This book is about a tiger who comes to tea (hence the name) and eats all their food and drinks everything in the house. It has great illustrations and a good text although I don’t see how it drinks all the water in the tap. This is good for younger readers.

  25. lbailie says:

    pJudith Kerr grew up in a Jewish family in Germany in the 1930s when Hitler and the Nazis came to power. Her father was critical of Hitler and books he wrote were burned by the Nazis and the family had to leave Germany for their safety. Judith has written a semi-autobiographical book for children about her experiences at this time, and subsequent life as a refugee, called When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit. You might like to read it – there are copies on the Library Bus. Some people have speculated that the tiger turning up at her house and taking things was influenced by her childhood experiences but she has denied that this is the case – and don’t you think that the tiger seems too friendly a presence for this to be true?

    1. Ms Fee says:

      This is a really interesting review Lula – I enjoyed hearing about the speculation over its ‘true meaning’, but I also love it as a ‘straight-forward’ picture book!

  26. Abena Boakye says:

    the tiger who came to tea is aturrly a good book. I like when the tiger knok the door.

  27. abrooks says:

  29. swilson says:

    This is a story of the tiger who came to tea. Once on one day was a little girl who invited a tiger to tea.?

  30. dsampson says:

    This book is about a family that a tiger visits. The tiger eats and drinks all the food and water in the house. The family gets a problem because they don’t have any food or water but then their daddy came home and had an idea. I like the characters but I think it could have a slightly better storyline.

  31. glincoln says:

  32. apriechenfried says:

  34. mchangbrown says:

    I love this book.My favourite part is when the tiger eats every thing the house.????

  35. mjohnson2 says:

    I really like this book. It is about a little girl called Sophie who is having a quiet tea with her mum. Suddenly a tiger knocks on the door and she lets him in. The tiger was very hungry so he ate and drank everything inside the house! I recommend this book for people who like comedy books.??

  36. mznak says:

    I think this is a good book because it’s very funny and the tiger drinks all the tap water ,juice and all of daddy’s special beer.?????
