Publisher's Summary

Read by Geraldine McEwan. This classic story has been loved by millions of children since it was first published over 40 years ago.

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripy tiger!

©1968 Judith Kerr (P)2013 HarperCollins Publishers Limited

Critic Reviews

"A modern classic." ( The Independent)
"This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house." ( Junior Magazine)

Lots of dialogue added.

This has a lot of dialogue added that is not in the book. The simpler story is better!

This is not the original!

We LOVE this book, but the Audible version is expanded to almost twice the length of the original story, which is unnecessary and disappointing.

Good presentation of classic story

Well spoken.good choice of actors. Extra words (describing the pictures) can be confusing when you go back to the book.

very quickly turned into a favorite

5 year old son absolutely loves it. we listen to it most nights before bed. he knows all the words and even plays with reciting it in the same tones as the authors. excellent.

3 year old loves it

Great audio version of the book. Lots of sound effects and longer than the book. My daughter acts out the story and I have to play the tiger while she feeds me things from her play kitchen.
