The Tiger who came to tea is set to come to life in a new children’s’ television show, delighting everyone who remembers the book from when they were younger.

Channel 4 have recently revealed plans to adapt the beloved Judith Kerr, who passed away this week, children’s book for television, with the hopes of bringing in a host of new fans to the book describing a tiger who turns up unannounced at Sophie’s house and eats everything in her and her mum’s house.

The television show will be created by Lupus Films, makers of We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, the 2016 adaptation of Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury’s book.

To make the animated adaptation even more magical it is set to be aired on, or around, Christmas so it will give you the perfect excuse to cuddle up with the little ones with a hot chocolate and enjoy.

The 1968 book has sold over 5 million copies since its release and is a staple in everyone’s childhood growing up.

Judith Kerr, who is now 95 years old, also wrote the Mog The Forgetful Cat series which everyone will admit was another major childhood feature.

For those who have never read about the tiger who came to tea, or want to continue the magic with their own children, the book is priced at £5.49 and can be ordered online at Waterstones or picked-up in store.
