I do love this story by Judith Kerr. My mum bought it for me on my birthday. It is a story I love so much and when I got to school I told my friends and they loved it. The story is about Sophie and her extraordinary teatime guest. The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mum are sitting down to tea. They didn't expect to see at the door a big furry, stripy tiger! I will recommend it for children.

This book was exciting. My favourite part was when the tiger ate all the food from the cupboard. My favourite character was the tiger. I would recommend this book to my friends.

I liked it when the tiger ate all the food. I likedthat the tiger didn't come back again as that meant they always had enough food to eat.

It helps me to remember not to be greedy and if it is a stranger you should not give them a chance to eat your food

I really like this book because I think it is so funny when the tiger eats all the food on the table. Usually, tigers are really scary, but this tiger is the friendliest one in the universe! I like Sophie best because she is lovely to the tiger and isn’t afraid of him. Plus, she got him a tin of tiger food! My friends should read this as it reminds you of having a pet to care for.
