  • RIP Judith Kerr - children's author

    Judith Kerr, the author of the children's book The Tiger Who Came to Tea has died at the age of 95 - someone who was probably in the "Words and Pictures" territory of children's books a la Allan "Happy Families" Ahlberg; Pat "Rosie's Walk" Hutchins; Shirley "Dogger" Hughes; David "Not Now, Bernard" McKee and others - another one who I thought left us a few years ago. One assumes that the book is about about a rather large member of the cat family almost doing the same thing that Eric Carle's starving caterpillar did.

    I am not too familiar with the book myself, but I am almost certain that my Infant School classroom had a copy in its book corner, and also the children's section of my local library had a copy as well - a quite recognisable story book that has been read by generations of children.

    Did anyone read it (or had it read to) when they were younger?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
