#AtoZChallenge Letter T

T  is for The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

Tiger came

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.

Mog

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.

  2. The Mog books are amongst my favourite children’s books and were great favourites of my children. I loved to read the books to my classes (I was an early childhood teacher) I haven’t read When Hitler stole pink rabbit. I must look it out. Enjoy the rest of the A to Z challenge

  3. I tried to send a response… not sure if it has gone to moderation or disappeared into cyber space. I loved Mog books as did my kids. It was interesting to read Judith Kerr’s back story.

  4. I have never read any of her books but they sound interesting. Love that she is still working at 92. As they say, when you love what you do, it’s not work.
