Product Description

Review

‘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

About the Author

Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, but left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape the Nazis. They arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. There she met her husband Nigel Kneale and they had two children together; Judith wrote ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ for them, which has gone on to become a much-loved classic, in print for over forty years. She was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to children’s literature and holocaust education, and celebrates her 90th birthday in 2013.

RRP of this book is £12.99, which I consider waaaaay to much for a simple (not even a hard-copy), less than A5 size copy of the classic children’s story + plastic cup (tiny, made in China).

Amazon pricing in this instance (more than 60% off) is pretty fair, but if you want a lasting present – I would recommend a hard-cover of “The Tiger Who Came to Tea”.

This was my own children's favourite book when they were young, and I couldn't resist buying this set for a friends 20 month old child. I'm told this is the first book the toddler hasnt continually tried to snatch from her parents hands as they read it, instead sitting totally engrossed listening to the enchanting story, just as my own kids did. The little cup is a great size and again has been a big hit, the child in question asks for this cup to take her milk which is a breakthrough as she has up till that point insisted on her bottle. A fantastic gift for a young

Lovely set, but was dissappointed to find the cup was double handed, and not suitable for my very grown up 4 yr old grandson.

i bought this set as a gift for a 5yrs old boy. i expected the cup being bigger but it appeared that it was as big as baby's beaker- those that you teach your 1 or 2years old to drink from a cup. the boy's mum said he likes it and they are happy with the present.so i am happy with the purchase. on the other side- THE STORY IS GREAT so i think it is the story that will last for the next years to come rather than the cup :)

Great book lovely pictures, borrowed from the library and 4 year old daughter loved it so much
I bought her this copy for Christmas. Cup has 2 handles I don't have a problem with that but others
do and it's hard to see from the picture, also was printed upside down to the cover other than that
very pleased with purchase.

Great little gift set, I was worried the book would be tiny as has happened to me in the past. But this one is fine, granted its smaller than the standard paper cover book. This is a hard cover book, about half an A4 sheet size. Lovely little cup too, perfect for the 2yr old I intend it for.
