Yes but the husband of Judith Kerr was Nigel Kneale, who wrote Quatermass, so if he was coming home from a hard day spent inventing scary science fiction monsters and making up stories about time travel, a tiger would have seemed quite mild in comparison.
What does your dh do?

Sophie's mummy seems a little wet really.

DH and I were watching the end of CBeebies last night and Floella Benjamin was reading the Tiger who came to tea .

OMG Cod, what a brilliant thread.
I always thought it was an allegory for the family's experiences in the war, too - the cafe scene (going out in her nightie) is like the Bastille Day scene in 'When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit.'

Kathy - DH is an engineer - I have a feeling he wouldn't believe me - he would divorce me if his beer was gone...

Ooooh Idris - I would have loved to see Floella reading it I missed it

Cod- am reading thread & rofl... Your 1st post sums up how I feel about the whole thing!!
