The book was enjoyable because it talks about a fictional character as a human being - the TIger! I was surprised that the tiger could talk and eat and drink. the tiger was very hungry and ate all the food in the cupboards and drank all the water which meant that Sophie could not even have a bath! Sophie and her mum ended up going to a cafe because the tiger had all, the food and drink. The following day the family went shopping and bought tiger food for the tiger. So that the tiger would not eat all the food and drink again. I really enjoyed this book because of the chacater of the tiger. I will tell my friends about this book because they may share the same experiences that I did and enjoy the book like I did, we can talk about the book together then.

I think this book is very good because it is very imaginative and clever. This book is a fiction book, and my favourite character was the tiger because he is very funny in the way that he eats all of the food. ,

It's five and they have sausages in a cafe but I am also sad because they have no food.

Weird book about a tiger who comes to a house and eats all of the food so the people have to go to a café for their tea.

Brilliant book. We read this one lots

This book is more than 50 years old, but has never dated. Judith Kerr's pictures are always brilliant and you do see what people, houses and streets looked like in the 1960s. I feel rather sorry for the Dad when he comes home and finds that the Tiger has drunk up EVERYTHING in the house (including all his beer and all the tap water), but he's very reasonable considering. Favourite character: The Tiger (obviously).

I like this book because they have to buy tiger food because the hungry tiger ate all the food.

nice story about tiger who came to tea and had everything from Sophie house

I liked this story, because tigers don't usually drink tea, or eat sandwiches and cakes. They usually eat meat.

This is my favourite book about a tiger who turns up for tea at sophia house. He eats and Drinks everything so they have nothing left. I like that they buy him tiger food in case he ever comes back.
