Tiger Who Came To Tea’ author Judith Kerr dies at 95

Her story of a disruptive, uninvited guest was interpreted by some as an allegorical tale of marital infidelity and by others as representing the rise of Hitler.

But Judith Kerr, who has died aged 95, and who fled Germany with her parents in 1933, said her most successful book, “The Tiger Who Came Tea”, was really just about a tiger who came to tea.

It was certainly popular – selling more than a million copies.
