The Tiger Who Came To Tea

While Sophie and her mother are sitting down to tea one afternoon, the doorbell rings. A big, furry, stripy tiger has come for tea … and sandwiches, and buns, and biscuits … and eats all the food in the house until there’s nothing left to cook for Daddy’s supper. Judith Kerr’s reassuring and funny story — with just a hint of anarchy — has been delighting children since its first publication thirty-five years ago. This modern classic has gone on to sell over three million copies worldwide, making it one of the most popular picture books for children ever written.

Naughty Kitty

When Lily is finally allowed to have her very own kitten, strange things are afoot. Lily’s brand new, teeny-tiny Kitty shouldn’t be any trouble at all, but as soon as Lily leaves Kitty alone, hilarious hijinks are always around the corner. Kitty ruins the kitchen, Kitty ruins the den. And we won’t talk about what Kitty did to the rug. A loveable story that will have kids laughing out loud.

The Sultan’s Tigers

As in the middle grade series debut Island of Thieves, scrappy twelve-year-old Tom Trelawney and his swashbuckling Uncle Harvey are a dynamite combination—in the dangerous, explosive sort of way. This time around, they impulsively fly from Ireland to India in hot pursuit of a small bejeweled tiger that yet another Trelawney, a British soldier, allegedly plundered in 1799. They’re pretty sure they can get a couple million dollars for it too, if they can make it past a gun-happy Aussie and a pit of man-eating tigers.
