is for The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
Judith Kerr was born in Germany, where as Hitler gained power,the writing of her journalist father made escape essential. Living first in Switzerland and then Paris, the family finally arrived in London in 1936. After working for the Red Cross during the war, Judith gained a scholarship to the Central School of Arts and Crafts. She worked as an artist and a BBC scriptwriter until she started writing stories for her young family. The Tiger who came to Tea is her favourite.
Judith has also written 17 books about Mog the Forgetful Cat which are also very popular.
Although now 92 years old Judith Kerr is still working. I can thoroughly recommend her trilogy of books about her family’s escape to freedom, the first When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit being ideal for anyone over 8 years old.
