The Chinese version of a delightful classic English children’s book which has been translated into 25 different languages and sold 5 million copies world-wide.
Sophie and her Mummy are having tea in the kitchen when in walks a hungry tiger who asks to stay to tea. After eating everything, he moves on to Daddy's supper and for good measure also cleans out the fridge and drinks all the water from the tap. When Daddy gets home, he decides they should all have supper out and the next day Sophie and Mummy buy an extra big tin of tiger food - just in case the tiger comes back!
About the author
Judith Kerr was born on 14 June 1923 in Berlin but escaped from Hitler's Germany with her parents and brother in 1933 when she was nine years old. Her father was a drama critic and a distinguished writer whose books were burned by the Nazis. The family passed through Switzerland and France before arriving finally in England in 1936.
Judith went to eleven different schools, worked in the Red Cross during the war, and won a scholarship to the Central School of Arts and Crafts in 1945. Since then, she has worked as an artist, a BBC television scriptwriter and, for many decades, as author and illustrator of children's books.
Judith passed away when she was 93.
