Honestly I like this book but it is a bit simple. My favourite character has to be Sophie. The tiger would eat and drink everything that he can see. Sophie could not even take a bath. The next morning when Sophie and Mum went to the shop they bought a lot of food. But at the end I am still wondering if the taps were running again.

I thought it was really funny because the tiger ate and drank everything. He made a big mess!

My favourite character was Sophie. I liked Sophie's boots.I also liked the mum's handbag. I liked the cat on the footpath when Sophie and her mum and dad were going to the cafe.

I thought it was funny when the Tiger drank all of Daddy's beer and when there was no water left for Sophie's bath! It was a good book!

I liked when the Tiger came to tea and he ate all of the food. Sophie and her mum  imaged the tiger was real but it was actually a cat.  The Tiger was my favourite character because he was a greedy tiger, who would eat everything. When Sophie's daddy came home from work they ended up going out for dinner,  as everything at home was eaten by the tiger.  5/5

My favourite in this book is sophie she helps her mummy bake bisckuits cake and she offers some tea and cake for the special person who she opened the door to which was tiger. They had a tea party and the tiger joined in but he never came back again after eating everything. I would recommend the story because it is interesting about the tiger.

This is a Fiction book. I like Sophie's Character most because she was very kind and helpful for the tiger very much by giving him food and drinks. Even Tiger was also good, he was not harmful but he was very hungry, so he ate all food. I like this book very much. Kids will be enjoying this book.
