Reviews from Around the World "A favorite book in our family for 2 generations. A tiger comes and eats EVERYTHING in the house. At the end of the book the family goes out for dinner, I laughed as a young mom reading it to my kids thinking what a great idea to get dinner out. Every now and then in our family "The Tiger comes to Tea" and we have to go out. That still makes my husband laugh.."— Lee Anne Guryn, Amazon
"I adore this book. I got it as a gift for a 1 year old and she had me read it to her 10 times the first day. She calls it the tiger book and loves it so much. A must have in your child's library."— Amazon Customer
