Product description


“It’s no surprise Judith’s work is still popular. It owes nothing to the vagaries of style or fashion. Her warmth and humanity are timeless.” Michael Foreman

‘Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying.’ Dorothy Butler, Babies Need Books.

‘A modern classic.’ The Independent.

‘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

About the Author

Judith Kerr OBE was born in Berlin. Her family left Germany in 1933 to escape the rising Nazi party, and came to England. She studied at the Central School of Art and later worked as a scriptwriter for the BBC.
Judith married the celebrated screenwriter Nigel Kneale in 1954. She left the BBC to look after their two children, who inspired her first picture book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea. Published in 1968 and never out of print in the fifty years since, it has become a much-loved classic and perennial bestseller.
Judith was awarded the Booktrust Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, and in 2019 was named Illustrator of the Year at the British Book Awards. Judith died in May 2019 at the age of 95, and her stories continue to entertain and delight generations of children.

3.0 out of 5 stars Story is cute but brings up topics some kids might ask about
Reviewed in the United States on 18 March 2020
I really like to buy things from survivors of Nazi Germany.

The story overall was fine. The tiger was rude, came in ate all of their food and drinks and then left- never to return. My choice to return was because of the line “and all Daddy’s beer” this line probably comes from the time and location and I understand that. I’m not a prude, I can kick one back just as well as anyone else can but I’m not comfortable reading it or changing the word up to hide it from one of my kids. I feel when I read that she will ask what beer is and if she can have some. Obviously since she’s five the answer is no and I feel it brings up a topic that’s pointless with an end result of her not being allowed to try something.

To me- it’s a line that I’m not comfortable with reading. For this reason we have chosen to return.
