The Tiger Who Came To Tea celebrates the life and work of Judith Kerr, one of Britain’s best known children’s book author-illustrators. Copies of Kerr’s original artwork will be on display alongside notes and sketches. Children can also enjoy stepping into Sophie’s kitchen to have tea with a life-size tiger. Published in 1968, Kerr’s first picture book The Tiger Who Came to Tea began as a bedtime story for her own children. It became a classic. By the 40th anniversary in 2008, the book had 11 language translations and had sold over five million copies. The exhibition celebrates 100 years of Judith Kerr and her incredible contribution to children’s literature. It has been developed by Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books, and introduces the beloved picture book to a new generation of family audiences.
