The Tiger who came to Tea...

It would seem self explanatory why I love this book - any tiger who drinks tea like this would be welcome in our house!

I remember this book from my childhood and I found a copy in a charity shop here in Zurich for my boys, it was always a firm favourite.

This Christmas we've loved watching the Channel 4 film. I didn't think the boys would humour me in sitting and watching it. But they did. And Patrick even watched it again with me today.
Just wonderful, and the song is now stuck in my head as an earworm!

And I stil cry at the Sainsbury's ad based on "Mog's Christmas" - Judith is the character at the end who says "he deserves a medal"
