Adapted from Judith Kerr’s classic 1968 tale of the greedy tiger, The Tiger Who Came to Tea follows Sophie and Mummy as they encounter a surprising dinner guest. Sophie and Mummy are about to sit down for tea when the doorbell rings. Both wonder who the mystery guest is – it can’t be the milkman or the grocer, and it can’t be Daddy. The very last thing they expect is to greet a hungry tiger at the door! Soon, Sophie and Mummy discover his insatiable appetite as he eats them out of house and home – what will they do when Daddy comes home?
