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!

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)

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.
