The Tiger who came to Tea, 27 July 2010
Why does a man in his sixties read a book like this? I recently attended an musical evening at a well known college in Berkshire. The event was in support of a childrens charity of which my wife is a trustee. One of the auction prizes was "Tea with The tiger who came to Tea". When I asked what this meant, it went silent, at which point our hostess the Head Girl remarked "Have you never read the book everyone reads this book". Well I immediately ordered the book and read it to my 6 year old Grandson. It was perfect, wonderfully illustrated but told an exciting story. The size of the Tiger against Sophie but so well mannered. What is going to happen next? Will the tiger ever stop? How will it end? Such an understanding Daddy who seemed to take it all in his stride .... like we all do as parents and grandparents. What did happen to the Tiger? It makes me wonder every time there is a knock at the door.
