The Tiger who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr Once there was a little girl called Sophie, and she was having tea with her mummy in the
kitchen. Suddenly there was a ring at the door. Sophie’s mummy said, “I wonder who that can be. It can’t be the milkman because he came this
morning. And it can’t be the boy from the grocer because this isn’t the day he comes. And it can’t be Daddy because he’s got his
key. We’d better open the door and see.” Sophie opened the door and there was a big, furry, stripy tiger. The tiger said, “Excuse me, but I’m very hungry. Do you think I could have tea with you?” Sophie’s mummy said, “Of course, come in.” So the tiger came into the kitchen and sat
down at the table. Sophie’s mummy said, “Would you like a sandwich?” But the tiger didn’t just take one sandwich. He took all the sandwiches on the plate and swallowed them in one big mouthful. Owp! And he still looked hungry, so Sophie passed him the buns. But again the tiger didn’t eat just one bun. He ate all the buns on the dish. And then he ate all the biscuits and all the cake, until there was nothing left to eat on the
table. So Sophie’s mummy said, “Would you like a drink?” And the tiger drank all the milk in the milk
jug and all the tea in the teapot. And then he looked around the kitchen to see
what else he could find. He ate all the supper that was cooking in
the saucepans… …and all the food in the fridge, …and all the packets and tins in the cupboard… …and he drank all the milk, and all the orange juice, and all Daddy’s beer, and all the water in the tap. Then he said, “Thank you for my nice tea. I think I’d better go now.” And he went. Sophie’s mummy said, “I don’t know what to do. I’ve got nothing for Daddy’s supper, the tiger has eaten it all.” And Sophie found she couldn’t have her bath
because the tiger had drunk all the water in the tap. Just then Sophie’s daddy came home. So Sophie and her mummy told him what had
happened, and how the tiger had eaten all the food and
drunk all the drink. And Sophie’s daddy said, “I know what we’ll do. I’ve got a very good idea. We’ll put on our coats and go to a cafe.” So they all went out into the dark, and all the street lamps were lit, and all the cars had their lights on, and they walked down the road to a cafe. And they had a lovely supper with sausages
and chips and ice-cream. In the morning Sophie and her mummy went shopping and they bought lots more things to eat. And they also bought a very big tin of Tiger
Food, in case the tiger should come to tea again. But he never did.
