When the doorbell rings, Sophie and her Mum wonder who could be there. It can’t be the milkman, it can’t be the grocer, and it certainly can’t be Daddy – so who could it be? Upon opening the door and discovering the tiger outside, chaos quickly ensues in this hugely funny tale of mealtime mayhem.
Packed full of interactive songs, music, adventure and plenty of laughter, The Tiger Who Came to Tea sees Sophie and her Mum welcome in a hungry tiger who eats and drinks everything in the house! With it quickly becoming clear that his appetite is insatiable, the pair wonder what Daddy will think when he comes home and there’s no food left!
